But you know, often we don’t like to give everything to Christ. We like to divide our heart, see how much we will have leftover when we give so and so much. I have that problem with birthday shopping too. But we come to Christ with half of our hearts, and say, “Is this enough?” and Christ says no, and that we must go back and get the part that we left with the scum. So we go back, scoop out another quarter or so, and say, “Is this enough?” and we get a negative answer. I am thoroughly convinced that, if not stopped, we would go on in this same pattern forever. But Christ, I his mercy steps in, and shows us his great love; and he does a continuing work in our lives, so that, in the end, we are clothed with his righteousness, and our hearts are completely given to him. This doesn’t come easily. Indeed, I don’t believe it doesn’t come at all in this life. But the great work has begun. Praise God.
rutherford’s turn: I find it most true, that the greatest temptation out of hell, is to live without temptations; if my waters should stand, they would rot. Faith is the better of the free air, and of the sharp winter storm in it’s face.
hint at tomorrow: tomorrow or the day after I should have put up my review of: Prince Caspian!!!!
