The starting point is good – purpose well-defined and many opportunities given. There was only one stipulation…
Doubt began with a dissenting voice and one simple question. Why wasn’t it simply answered? And thus began the rationalization and drift…
Nakedness and brokenness were realized. The only solution is to return to the starting point and rely on the goodness of the One who stands at the beginning.
1 Peter 3.13-22 –
Now proceed, come what may, with a good conscience towards the One who stands at the starting point.
And be on the lookout for the desires of the flesh, self-serving religion, and the thirst for power and control.
Now proceed accordingly.
