I’m in an all day faculty meeting discussing the nature of the Gospel. Looking particularly at the issue of the relationship between justification and sanctification–a topic in many seminaries these days as “the new perspective” gets lots of attention, both positive and negative.
But here’s a quote from Chambers reminding me how best to fight besetting sin:
Never give way to reverie, imaginations or thinking over which you have no control; to do so is the surest way to slip into a relapse. Few of us realize the power God has given us to grip on the threshold of the mind as in a vice the things that ought not to be there.
Oswald Chambers, Notes on Jeremiah, p. 1396 (Jer. 4:14)
