A Note to Part-time Christians!

Christianity is not easy neither is it difficult, it is SERIOUS! When God calls us to service, he is not calling us to a picnic. As one preacher once said; "if we are not aggressively righteous then we are passively wicked." 

"There are some who seem to be always seeking for the heavenly pearl. But they do not make an entire surrender of their wrong habits. They do not die to self that Christ may live in them. Therefore they do not find the precious pearl. They have not overcome unholy ambition and their love for worldly attractions. They do not take up the cross and follow Christ in the path of self-denial and sacrifice. Almost Christians, yet not fully Christians, they seem near the kingdom of heaven, but they cannot enter there. Almost but not wholly saved, means to be not almost but wholly lost."– {COL 118.1}

(Quotation taken from one of my favourite books 'Christ Object Lessons' by 'Ellen G. White)
