“Has God’s Word ever come to you, pointing out an area of your life, requiring you to yield it to Him–maybe certain personal qualities, desires, and interests, or possibly relationships of your heart and mind? That is where the battle is truly fought–in the realm of your will before God. What Jesus says is difficult–it is only easy when it is heard by those who have His nature in them. Beware of allowing anything to soften the hard words of Jesus Christ.” –Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest
Yes, even now.
