Plain and simple: we're fooling ourselves if we think we can live "Christianly" apart from regular intake of God's Word and purposeful prayer. Funnily, we go about singing the words of Cinderella and try to apply them to our faith walk:
In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
And the world will open it's arms to me.
That may be true in a Broadway musical but not in the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ. In our own little corner, in our favourite easy chair, we'd best strive for being what Jesus wants us to be. Then the kingdom will open to us and the world will be damned to our affection. Then we can fly on wings of faith that lift us into His presence where their is fullness of joy!
