>Why Do We Disobey?

>“As you have received Christ Jesus as Lord, so walk (live) in Him.” Too often I fail because I forget that the gospel is not “simply” how we get saved/converted/born again; but it is how we are to live 24/7/365.

Recommend you slowly read this:

“At the root of all our disobedience are particular ways in which we continue to seek control of our lives through systems of works-righteousness. The way to progress as a Christian is to continually repent and uproot these systems the same way we become Christians, namely by the vivid depiction (and re-depiction) of Christ’s saving work for us, and the abandoning of self-trusting efforts to complete ourselves. We must go back again and again to the gospel of Christ-crucified, so that our hearts are more deeply gripped by the reality of what he did and who we are in him.”
– Timothy Keller

>Pursuing God Will Get Lonely

>Don’t ignore the following:

“The man who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual inner experience will not find many who understand him. He finds few who care to talk about that which is the supreme object of his interest, so he is often silent and preoccupied in the midst of noisy religious shoptalk… It is this that drives him to seek in God what he can find nowhere else.”
– A.W. Tozer, The Loneliness of The Christian
