It Sees That Few Christians Today Ever Get There…

We are all frail and fragile children who sin a great deal in our disobedience, but who also manage to sin a great deal in our best obedience as well.  Discovering this truth and growing to love it can be one of the most powerful and joyful motivations for change that God ever invented, but it seems that few Christians today ever get there.  They have such a hard time giving up their great expectations for themselves and other, and they are left spinning aimlessly in circles of fear and shame as they try desperately to impose those expectations on the recalcitrant world around them.
