Gathering in Christ
Preserve my life, for I am holy; You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You!
…There are some people in whom you cannot find a speck and yet they are not abundantly blessed of God, while others make grave indiscretions and get marvelously blessed; the reason being that the former have become devotees of personal holiness, conscientious to a degree; the latter are marked by abandonment to God. Whatever centers attention on anything other than our LORD Himself will always lead astray.The only way to be kept cleansed is by walking in the light, as God is in the light. Only as we walk in the light is the holiness of Jesus Christ not only imputed, but imparted, to us.
