The above image is scanned from a small note card that I used last Sunday to jot down my thoughts during church at Fathers House in Bend Oregon.  Randy our pastor was talking about the word Adherent:
Definition: supporter or follower
Synonyms: advocate, aficionado, backer, believer, card-carrying member, devotee, disciple, enthusiast, hanger-on

This sermon caused me to ponder my level of Adherence.  To consider my enthusiasm and my ability to preserver.  I take solace in the fact that even faith is a gift, and that said, I feel confident in praying for a greater measure of adherence.

Ephesians 2:7-9
in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

  1. I'm with you. I could definitely use more adherence.

  2. I think we all can. I will be praying that God will grant you the gift of Adherence.

  3. I like the idea of trusting God for more adherence. I heard a sermon once about how only Jesus went to the cross. All his disciples bolted. His point was that we needed to rely on Jesus in us if we want to answer the call to take up our cross & follow Him. Good word.

    1. Teague, thank you for the comment. I agree that it is only through Jesus that we can step up to the call.
