This has been a really good morning--with sunshine, birdsong and Bible. And it is ending all too quickly. My quiet time was an extra long one reviewing bible study verses and sermon notes. We attend small group on alternate Monday nights discussing Jerry Bridges' "Pursuit of Holiness" which seems to tie in well with the messages on Sunday mornings on Leviticus. I've read "Pursuit" a couple of times, but it seems to really resonate right now in my heart. Funny how that happens. It's like I've never read it before.
A quote for you:
"Faith is not only necessary to salvation, it is also necessary to live a life pleasing to God. Faith enables us to claim the promises of God--but it also enables us to obey the commands of God. Faith enables us to obey when obedience is costly or seems unreasonable to the natural mind."
---Jerry Bridges, "Pursuit of Holiness" page 140
