Quote: Intimacy

 

 
~ Do You Have Intimacy With Jesus Christ? ~
 
You can learn from breakfast!  
 
The following is an excerpt from a book.
 
Intimacy and Lordship do not result from a casual involvement. They require commitment. People sometimes confuse the ideas of involvement with commitment.
 
There is an old story about a preacher who was once asked about the difference between involvement and commitment. He thought for a minute and then asked the questioner what he had eaten for breakfast. “Why, bacon and eggs,” came the reply. “That’s the difference!” the preacher replied. Noticing the confused look on the man’s face the preacher continued, “The chicken was involved with your breakfast, but the pig was committed!” 
 
Paul tells us, “…do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2). The original word translated “good” relates to that which is morally good in relation to God. The word “acceptable” carries the connotation of an on-going lifestyle that is pleasing to God. “Perfect” involves a mature attitude—taking the grown-up action in life’s decision points. The opposite is to think and act immaturely, like a small child.
 
In essence Paul is telling you that as your mind is in the process of being renewed by Scripture, you are being equipped to figure out for yourself what the will of God is for you in the various life situations which you face. That is a great Biblical concept!
 
~ from “THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH: Understanding God’s Will for You” by Robert Lloyd Russell, pg 96 (ISBN: 9781606474303)
