Love in action
It seems that love really is an action. This morning I have learned that my greatest efforts are no comparison to the trans formative work of God in my life.Exhausting myself to achieve perfection is futile; there is no such thing in this earth nor is there need for it. Christ's perfection was shown through his obedience to his father and will always be the perfect model. I now understand what Paul spoke of in Philippians 3 when he said, "Not that I have already obtained this or have already been made perfect...but I press on..". Spiritual growth is like taking baby steps through the mud.It's a good thing I got my boots on.
