Thought for a Monday

"If you are not yet prepared to do as you are told, no matter how weak or foolish it will make you look, then whatever you believe about the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is still academic. You have not yet entered into the good of it."— The Indwelling Life of Christ: All of Him in All of Me, page 73

<idle musing>
I just re-read this without the context, and it sounds scary! He isn't talking about a mindless, obey the master, obedience; rather, he is discussing walking by faith in God. Think Abraham sacrificing Isaac; does that help? If you don't put legs to your faith, it is academic.
