In nothing is vigor in the actings of our inclinations so requisite, as in religion; and in nothing is lukewarmness so odious. -Jonathan Edwards
It is on page 6 of "Religious Affections." My progress in this book is slow. So much to drink in. Why does it always sound more obvious when someone else says it? Shouldn't I understand that without passion, without love, my works are hollow?
So many Scriptures come to mind that validate this idea, yet I continue to fall short. I need to put these Scriptures more before me.
Isaiah 64:6 All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
What Scripture comes to your mind?
