Author’s note: It is a convicting thing to read an article that I myself wrote years ago and have it leave me feeling somewhat desperate. This article was written over three years ago and still, even as I repost it today, it causes me to tremble inside and question my fat, lazy, wandering, apathetic heart. I am strongly reminded that without the saving grace and mercy of Lord Jesus Christ my life is worse than worthless. I am dead to Hell without Him. O for a deeper respect and a growing confidence in the love and power of Jesus Christ. He has the words of life. May we continue to have the heart to follow these words.
