A good friend of mine posted this on her Facebook page a few days ago and I think it goes perfectly with the theme of this blog.
“The greatest trick the enemy has pulled on Christians is to convince us to do our best…the cunning shift is away from union WITH Christ to doing our best FOR Christ. The secret to Christianity is that God comes to live inside us, impart his life to us, give us his power and from there we can go on to love, serve, pray, fight, live. But only from there. Most Christians are living out some version of “do your best,” or they have collapsed from trying and given in. How much of your day is given over to union with Jesus? To even asking for it? We need Jesus desperately, inside of us. We need His life to live this life. This, and nothing else, will rescue us.” – a letter from John Eldredge
