Who Sets Our Bearing?

6 09 2011

We are in a series on the new season of reconciliation and grace. Last time we talked about who is our compass, the bible. A compass is great but if you have no bearing you are running around aimlessly. So who sets our bearing? Is it Donald Trump, President Obama or maybe getting the house payment made? Many good Christians allow the world to set their bearing and they can’t figure out why they feel so lost.


     I believe we were created to have Christ as our bearing. John 15:5-8 tells us; “If we remain in him and he in us we will bear much fruit…. all to the glory of God”.  The writer Paul puts it ever more clearly in Acts 17:28, “For in him (Christ) we live and move and have our being”. What a great bearing! There is freedom when we have a secure bearing so that when we get off tract we know where we are going even if we get loss.


Using our compass (the bible) we can always find our way back to Christ

for he is “the same yesterday, today and forever”, Hebrews 13:8.


     We must throw off all hindrances to embracing our true bearing, especially on those days when we don’t think we have any time to focus on Christ. When I don’t take the time often I find myself off course. We need to let go of all worldly bearings and focus on Christ so our lives can fall into proper alignment.


     With these two things, the bible and Christ you are equipped to walk in step with God as we enter this new season of Reconciliation and Grace!  Next time we will talk more about walking in step with God.
