Aside: Little Thought of the Day

“People do not drift toward holiness . Apart from grace -driven effort , people do not gravitate toward godliness , prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith , and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance ; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self- control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated ?” – D A Carson
