Daily Thought: Seek With Your Whole Heart

"The impotence of the church is greatly due to the fact that this cross-bearing mind of Jesus is so little preached and practiced.  Most Christians  think that as  long as they don't commit actual sin, they are at liberty to possess and enjoy as much of the world as they please.  There is so little insight into the deep  truth that the world, and the flesh that loves the world, is enmity against God. Consequently, many Christians seek and pray for years for conformity to the image of Jesus, yet fail so entirely.  They do not seek with the whole heart to know what it is to die to self and the world." ~  Andrew Murray, The Best of Andrew Murray, p. 111

your Holy Word and the peace
that comes from all of this.
May you reside in me,
and may I live my Life
