To cut “right to the chase,” we are moving forward in faith, or we are going backwards; there is no standing still. If we get caught in a comfort zone we begin to make it about us because it’s “nice” and it feels good to relax. However, it’s when our guard is down that the evil one looks to infiltrate our thoughts to slowly pull us back into things that lead us away from God or make us idle, so we forget to include God in our daily thoughts.
Each day we must look to advance our knowledge, our relationship, and love of our faith. Not because we want to be the next theologian, but because our heart desires to keep moving forward in developing a deeper relationship with the one who created us. Be strong and challenge yourself.
