There are many times in our lives when our spiritual growth feels stuck.
Our hearts are lukewarm, we lack the desire to read the Word, and we continue to fall into the same patterns of sin.
In those moments, we may think that if we force ourselves to read the Bible or slap our hands every time we sin, then we will grow in holiness and love our Savior more. If we’re honest, none of these work. We need the help of the Holy Spirit.
In his book, Dane Ortlund, explains that as we go deeper into the wonders of the gospel, our hearts and lives are transformed. It’s not about what we do or stop doing, but whom we are fixing our eyes upon. I invite you to pick up this book and ask the Lord to captivate your heart and transform your life.
