July 8, 2008 - Letter to a Friend (Excerpt from Grace Walk)

This pretty much sums up my life......"You have a sincere hunger to live as a victorious Christian. But, if you are like many other Christians, you may feel that your level of spiritual victory has been mediocre at best. That is the place that many of us have lived our Christian lives for years. Many know what it is to rededicate themselves to live for God and then to sincerely try hard, only to ultimately discover that they just can't live it like they want to. For some of us, this is all we know of the Christian life. Mediocrity in the Christian life leaves us with a gnawing sense that there must be more to being a Christian than this. Surely, we think, this isn't how God means for the Christian life to be! The Bible describes the Christian life as joyful and victorious. Maybe, like many others, when you look at the level at which you live as a Christian, it leaves you yearning for something more." Have you ever felt this way?
