Grow, Grow, Grow

I find it really annoying when liberally minded people say we don’t need to read the Bible and pray every day and then rubbish those who do. It’s as much a “legalistic burden” as using breathing apparatus for deep sea diving.

If we’re thinking of it as a “do I have to?” then it’s a burden. If we’re thinking of it as a “I get to” then it’s our passion, our joy and our means of grace. It becomes as natural as breathing and as edifying as food and water. When we miss out on our times alone with God, it jars. Not because we have guilt about it or we’re no longer in God’s good books, but because we’re missing something vital to our well-being and our souls are crying out to be nurtured.
