  1. I have found this especially true in my own life. I tend to want it all and at no cost. Knowledge that is. Why should I have to think about it? After all I have the Holy Spirit to magically zap it (truth) into me. It’s too easy to be lazy, I remember using the, “I do have a day job”, excuse most recently in a certain Hermeneutics class I’m taking in an online course at the Veritas School of Theology. http://www.inquiroveritas.com/
    Thank God for His grace!

    It’s also easy to take the quiet stand for what I believe in. Somehow I’m less and less convinced that our faith is a passive one.
    Thank God for His Holy Spirit!
    Reminds me of Joshua 1:8
    This book of the law depart from your mouth. But meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success,
