Sober Judgement

Think with sober judgement each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.   Romans 12:3

Apostle Paul reminds you to have humility, as one would think with sober judgement of themselves.  There is a human tendency to rely on our own resources instead of relying on Christ’s resources.  With sober judgement of ourselves we affirm that we are ineffective in our own choices and yet when we are directed by the Holy Spirit, Christ’s Presence alive within us, we are filled and replenished with the living water of Life which is Christ.

Jesus says to you, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to Me and let the one who believes in me drink.”  John 7:37-38

Drink life giving Presence.  For you are a channel of Life to others through Christ’s Spirit which was given to believers at Pentecost.  The mark of the Holy Spirit is on your life (Joel 2:28-29, Acts 2:14-21).  Actively use faith and use the gifts given you: to minister, teach, speak about faith alive, generously give, lead in right living, be diligent, and cheerfully compassionate.
