It Is A Devastatingly Painful Thing

It is a devastatingly painful thing to be a weak Christian in the American evangelical church today.  So much emphasis is put on reading, praying, growing and victory that there is much room left for those God is holding on to with a strong arm, but who may know little of the joy of full assurance of faith and the satisfaction of growth in grace and obedience – at least in this life.
