Easy or Hard?

18 Apr

Do you look at the Christian life as being easy or hard?… You will never be able to live the Christian life…. God never intended for the Christian life to be a struggle. The Holy Spirit should flow from the life of the Christian as naturally as breathing. But many Christians are hyper-ventilating trying to do something for God.

Many modern church members are absolutely exhausted from their efforts to serve God. You had better be fit enough to run a marathon race if you become a part of some churches… Many Christians have burned out because they have wrongly assumed that they must keep on keeping on, no matter how tired they are or how much they hate it… they believe it is their duty… Jesus used words like ‘rest’ and ‘easy’ and ‘light’ to describe the Christian life.
