Have you ever tried to "walk in the Spirit" for a whole day? Have you attempted to "bring every thought captive" and abide in the Presence of Christ for 24 hours? If you have tried and were successful, please tell me more about it.
I tried to "pray without ceasing" yesterday and I don't think I even survived the Monday morning commute.
I read a great article over the weekend entitled, "Fallen From Grace" Thomas Gilson, were he first describes my spiritual condition; flat, aimless, loveless, dead.
Then he points out that the Galatians were in the same the boat. They were following the rules all right but they had "fallen from grace".
And now you know my focus for 2009; to learn live in the "Grace, By Which I Stand"
