Beware.........

"Beware of making a fetish of consistency to your convictions instead of being devoted to God."

  1. I've been thinking about this so much lately! I hate to bring up a controversial Christian writer (well, no I don't!), but this is the concept that moved me so much in Rob Bell's book, Velvet Elvis. He said God is so beyond our comprehension that how can we ever assume we have come to the end of him and understand him perfectly? Thus,while he is unchanging, our understanding of him could change. I don't want to hold on to my definition of him. I want to hold on to him. And I find it rather affirming that Oswald Chambers presented a similar thought.

    1. Your right Serenity, that very thought was what spurred me to put this quote out there. As I had my devotions this morning, I thought to myself, "There is no way, even in my entire lifetime, that I will ever be able to comprehend or understand God, BUT I can devote myself to HIM, not the lifestyle, not the habits, not even the conviction, but to HIM." --there is a difference.
      You are such a wise young woman :)
      Love you!
