Jan: Mission Impossible – Serving God in the Flesh

Without the power of God’s indwelling, the Christian life is not only hard, it is literally impossible.  All of our feeble attempts to mend our own lives in our own strength, will end in frustration and defeat.  So much of religion is really little more than an attempt to enhance moralism: attend services, observe some religious rules, read your bible, pray, weep, and even do good works…  As if somehow we can impress God and lay Him under our debt.

But when we are brought to the understanding that without Him, without the Spirit of Christ, we can do nothing, we are truly set free.
