Sometimes it’s … [a powerful quote on the discipline Christianity requires]

Sometimes it’s self-discipline, not the power of God, which brings deliverance. We don’t need a miracle to open our bibles and study, we need discipline. We don’t need angelic visitations to know God’s will, we need to stop being lazy and get to the prayer meeting. Jesus will never over-ride our laziness, that’s out of line with His character. We must rise up to the call. Deny ourselves, pick up the cross, and follow Him. Laziness is not a demon, it’s the result of ignorance.

A powerful quote shared today by Pastor Brian Williams.

  1. Great quote! The actual sin is “tempting Christ”, it is listed along with lust, idolatry, fornication, and murmuring as 5 things that displeased God and caused Israel to be overthrown in the wilderness at various times (1 Cor 10). Tempting Christ is asking Him to bless our efforts when we’re walking contrary to His expressed will and nature! Like a business person praying that God bless his business when he’s knowingly cheating his customers, or ‘cooking’ the books.
