There is a line that we cross when we give our hearts to the Lord. Many people stop once they have crossed the line, mill around with others they find there and wonder why they are not experiencing the blessings of Christian life that they were promised. After awhile, some of them step back to the wrong side of the line, become once more captives to sin and console themselves that Christian life wasn’t what they had been led to believe.
God’s plan is for us to keep on going after we have crossed that line and go ever deeper into His love and obedience to His will.Those who do that find the rewards and joys of Christian life are far beyond their expectations.
The tennis ball doesn’t decide which side of the line it falls on, but we can.

The thoughts that inspired this post came from a letter I read twenty years ago telling of a message preached by Wildoer Losier, a minister of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite of Fonds Parisien, Haiti.
