There is no need to put on an act!

There is no need to put on an act, the Christian lifestyle is not a choice, it is a spiritual orientation, so to speak; it is precipitated automatically by the indwelling Christ, or it is not even real. For the soul abiding in Christ, it is as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. This is either the natural outcome of a real relationship or it is the manufactured facade of self-righteousness. The lies fall away and the clarity emerges as we grow in grace and as a result, all things are pure, the Christian lives rightly because that is such an attractive opportunity, people are perceived as that precious, and the hoped for outcome is yearned for by an involuntary hunger. It is such an automatic fruit that it is not even an issue. ~Bob Greaves
