In His Steps - With Charles Spurgeon

It's been a busy, busy week. Working and going to school full-time on both ends is very trying. Patience can become a very rare commodity in the fast food biz, and sometimes people just flat-out don't like middle level management. It is quite alright though, as I remember this, "Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do..." (I COR 10:31-33) I serve Christ, and I am to preach Him crucified. Sometimes I'm not the best example of the stereotyped persona those who don't want to know Him place upon believers who profess Christ, and unfortunately those who profess Him and don't know Him further the bad example.....Is that a catch 22? Not sure. Anyway, here's what I wanted to post, so have a good day, and remember to live for Christ in all things.

"If we walk in the light, as he is in the light." -1 John 17
AS he is in the light! Can we ever attain to this? Shall we ever be able to walk as clearly in the light as he is whom we call "Our Father," of whom it is written, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all?" Certainly, this is the model which is set before us, for the Saviour himself said, "Be ye perfect, even as your Father who is in heaven is perfect;" and although we may feel we can never rival the perfection of God, yet we are to seek after it, and never be satisfied until we attain to it.

-Charles Spurgeon

(Do those who scoff and ridicule our struggle and perseverance to overcome the flesh really notice the battles that have been won or do they just look for fodder to load their cannons and further anesthetize their conscience from accountability to God?)
