Walking in Complacency

This morning I heard a speaker say that when we walk with the Lord for a long time, we can become complacent.

NO.
Walking in Complacency
I wrote that in large red letters and circled it in my notes.

If we are walking with God by definition we are not complacent.  It is when we are not in fellowship with Him that we are in danger.  We are to abide in Him, John 15:1 – 16.  We are to stay vigilant, 1 Peter 5:8.  If we are doing that, by definition we are walking with Christ and not complacent.

I find that it is when I have drifted away from the disciplines of discipleship, complacency steps in.

  1. We are promised that we have an enemy, one who prowls around, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Not inconvenience, not bother - devour!

    Nothing like a good circumstantial smack to shake off any complacency.
