Want to live better today. So much of that is my choice, probably more than I want to be responsible for. The Son has set me free and I am free indeed, yet it's almost as if I'd like to be less free so that I could believe myself to be a victim of circumstance. If He has made hope, joy, peace, love, faithfulness, and holiness (and so much more) possible in Him, then my state is that much more out-of-order.
We are at war, Christian friends. Sometimes we forget.
