True faith is not passive but active. It requires that we meet certain conditions, that we allow the teachings of Christ to dominate our total lives from the first moment we believe.
The man or woman who has met with the “head on impact” of life saving faith must be willing to be different from others. They choose.
The attempts to enjoy the benefits of a life redeemed and cleansed while being tangled up and enmeshed in the world is vain, and essentially leads to a lot of immature spiritual fruit and often – much conflict of heart.
We must choose one or the other.
Deep and focused faith quickly makes its choice.
It is one from which there is no retreat. The realization that clean and holy living invites the Voice and wisdom of God into all of life’s events, is a force that compares with none other.
In His Shadow,
