As I press in with God, I do not find that the road ahead of me broadens, and my options widen. I find that things are tightened up and narrowed. I’m less and less willing to allow the drudge of the world contaminate me, and I’m more and more intent on purity and holiness, because that is what he requires from me.
The aim is not to get away with letting in as much as I can get away with while retaining my ‘Christian’ title.
The aim is to have a pure heart and clean hands so that I can ascend the hill of the Lord. (Ps42)
So then why, oh why, are we seeing believers, supposed mature believers, flirting with fire and playing with principalities, and yet still expecting to not get burned?
