Are You Drifting?

Are you drifting off course?

“PEOPLE DO NOT drift toward holiness. 

Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, 

prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. 

We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; 

we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; 

we drift toward superstition and call it faith. 

We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; 

we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking 

we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness 

and convince ourselves we have been liberated.” 


D. A. Carson, For the Love of God
