The Christian journey begins with a quick amputation of all outward sin when a person surrenders his or her will to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit then begins the inner work of heart purity, or entire sanctification. But he will not begin this work if we love the world or the flesh: and that includes everything from professional sports to casual jokes and conversation. The normal Christian experience is to walk in the joy of heart purity, knowing that the heart is totally separated from lust for the world and completely consecrated to Jesus Christ. Where are you in this journey? Do you still rebel against God? You may attend church your whole life, know all the theology, and still be a pagan in the eyes of God. If you do not prepare to meet your Maker today, when will you?
