A midnight thought

"We don’t have to walk through life as if we were in a minefield where we may step into temptation and have our faith blown apart. Christians who know their identity in Christ aren’t paranoid about sins and temptation. Our responsibility is to simply rest in Christ. How? Christ has called us to simply rest in Him, allowing Him to love us, to live His life through us, and to deal with sins and temptations as they approach us during the short time of our earthly life. He accomplishes His work in us, through the power of His indwelling Spirit who inspires us to respond to His love."—Steve McVey, A Divine Invitation, electronic edition
