Suggestion or command?

I had a thought this morning. It's an application of some of what was discussed in my Romans class yesterday. The topic in question was regarding things in the New Testament, Romans specifically in this instance, that are commanded to be done but can and are regarded as suggestions to moral living or rejected/ignored because they don't fit a personal paradigm of life.

Vision check

So yesterday at lunch something clicked in me, that I have been walking such an astounding lack of faith. It's something I had identified to a certain degree at an earlier time, but it meant much more this time. The circumstances leading to this revelation was that we had been talking about the great faith of some of the Biblical fathers. This particularly was related to trusting that what God says are the most sound promises that can ever be.
