Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) ~ As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

I recently watched a Master Chef on a cookery programme take a steel rod and sharpen his knife with it. He would run the knife up and down the steel rod on both sides to sharpen it. Then he said this, “Never lose your cutting edge, always stay sharp.”

Iron cannot sharpen itself; it has to have something which is far stronger to sharpen it. You stay sharp by faithfully reading your Bible, faithfully spending time in the presence of the Lord in prayer, faithfully praying in the Holy Spirit, being a good witness for the Lord by telling people about Jesus and maintaining a good testimony through Kingdom living.

When you spend time in fellowship one with another, talking about the Bible, talking about our dear and precious Lord Jesus, you are, in effect, sharpening each other with the word of God. As you are doing the works of Jesus and daily follow in His footsteps you are keeping your testimony sharp, with a cutting edge.

My friend, always help one another to keep the cutting edge in your walk with God. Let your Saviour, your Master Jesus Christ constantly keep you fresh by daily yielding yourself to His will. Always allow the Holy Spirit to sharpen both sides of your spiritual and natural life. Help one another to stay in shape and be alert with a cutting edge. Try to strengthen one another and help each other to always stay fresh in the Lord. Keep that cutting edge to your testimony, your ministry and your spiritual life for the glory of God.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
