As Christians, we know it’s God who does the heavy lifting of changing and shaping us into the likeness of His Son. But, we have to invite Him in and then work with Him. And though the process leaves us tired and ‘sore’ sometimes, in the end we’ll feel so much healthier in every way!
“Everyone wants to change, but change demands desire and discipline before it becomes delightful. There is always the agony of choice before the promise of change.”
“For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”
