As believers, we understand that it is by the grace of God through faith that we are saved from the wrath of God that is to come and that we become righteous in His sight. But the grace of God and the faith that is of God through Jesus Christ is not to be taken lightly. Many of us are sitting back and living the way we want to live and have not taken into consideration how God would have us to live before Him. Many of us when we first believed go through what you may call boot camp. Boot camp in the army is a trail and test of one’s ability to see whether or not they can handle what comes their way before they are fully enlisted in the army.
As believers, we go through spiritual boot camps to have our faith tested. The scriptures says that God would not put more on us than we can bare, and the scriptures also says that He will always make a way of escape from our temtptations and trails. There are different types of boot camps that new born believers and mature believers go through for years until they go through that open door where God had made a way of escape so that they would be fully enlisted into His Kingdom forever. There are boot camps of sinnful acts and living, unforgiveness, unbelief (believing or following another faith or religion), disobedience, rebellion, and pride that believers struggle with in their walk with The Lord. In order to get out of boot camp, we must pass the test of Faith by giving our whole heart and submitting ourselves to The Lord so that we will be fully enlisted into His Kingdom with our name written in the Book of Life (as we call it The Lamb’s Book of Life). It is not in how we start our walk with The Lord, but it is in how we finish our walk with The Lord of lords and King of kings.
