Gathering in Christ

John 7:17
If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on my own authority.

If you do not cut the moorings, God will have to break them with a storm and send you out. Why not unloosen and launch all on God and go out on the great swelling tide of His purpose? … If you revise where you are stodgy spiritually, you will find it goes back to the point where there was one thing you knew you should do, but you did not do it because there seemed to be no immediate call to, and now you have no perception, no discernment. Instead of being spiritually self-possessed at the time of the crisis, you are spiritually distracted. It is a dangerous thing to refuse to go on knowing.
