I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14

Have you ever stood ankle—deep in the ocean? Gradually, wave upon wave washes about your feet ,rearranging and deposition sand. And if you stand there long enough, you will find not only your feet, but your legs also  buried beneath the sand., You don’t have to do anything. It is enough to do nothing. It is the same in the Christian life. You don’t have to do anything to  sink into worldly patterns of thinking and living. The world system in which  we live floods in, wave upon wave. . .

Our everyday environment seduces, taunts, and rages against the Christ-life with in us. Without concentrated, deliberate action  on our part to nourish our spiritual life, the on coming  tide wears away the under girding foundation of our  faith. To stanch the flow, to control the erosion, Christians must do more than hold our skirts higher. We much spend time apart with God. There is no growth in holiness apart from it.         Jean Fleming

 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11
