"Life in the Spirit"

"If you have heard that God quantum leaps you to Christlike maturity in one moment with one prayer, you have been misled. Yes, a decision to step down from the throne of self-sovereignty can be made in a moment. Yes, God accepts our consecration in a moment. However, the test of our resolve to make Christ Lord of all is validated daily with every choice."

"The incredible freedom Paul speaks of requires you to choose daily the way you think, value, and live. You have two alternatives to choose from several times a day. One lives life after the flesh, the other lives life after the Spirit."

(Both quotes from The Power to be Free, Frank Moore, Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City, 2005.)
