“Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord.”
2 Corinthians 5:6
It’s easy to take a day off from reading the Bible, praying or sharing the life and times of Jesus.
If anyone supposes that with man, living, as he still does, in this mortal life, it may be possible for him to dispel and clear off every obscurity induced by corporeal and carnal fancies, and to attain to the serenest light of immutable truth, and to cleave constantly and unswervingly to this with a mind wholly estranged from the course of this present life, that man understands neither what he asks, nor who he is that is putting such a supposition….If ever the soul is helped to reach beyond the cloud by which all the earth is covered , that is to say, beyond this carnal darkness with which the whole terrestrial life is covered, it is simply as if he were touched with a swift coruscation, only to sink back into his natural infirmity, the desire surviving by which he may again be raised to the heights, but his purity being insufficient to establish him there. The more, however, anyone can do this, the greater is he; while the less he can do so the less is he.
– St. Augustine
There is not a Christian alive who is better than another Christian – we are all still in the flesh and are all equal in God’s eyes.
Apostle Paul said that he was the leading sinner among sinners (1 Timothy 1:15)
It’s all about sanctification and it is going to take your entire earthly life. Never take a day off from learning about Jesus.
Keeping it 💯
