No Lightning Bolts

From Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands by Paul David Tripp:

"...Growth in grace doesn't come by lightning bolts and magical encounters but by humble, honest, obedient, and practical application of God's Word to the specifics of everyday experience. In sanctification God calls his children to follow, stand fast, forsake, trust, put off and put on, run, obey, put to death, study, flee, and resist."

I love these sane words. We've got some insanity going on among some folks we know involving frustrating "Christian" superstition. Some folks just won't be content with quietly living the Christian life.

Yes. It's funny how freeing it is to realize that the race we are running is a long-distance race, and is won by patient endurance, not constant shenanigans.
