You can't just decide to like something. Like, you can't just say, I'm going to like this now and decide to like. You have to actually like it.I told her that people decide to start liking something all the time. If what she said is true, how does that happen? She said:
You can't just decide to start liking something. You have to actually like it. Your taste buds have to change or somethin'.Yes! She was speaking truth deeper than she realized.
The following is a bit from my next book. Titled Gospel Wakefulness, it is coming next year from Crossway.
The kingdom itself is a treasure, often hidden from our spiritual senses while we are seeking satisfactions everywhere else, but once it has been dug up in the rocky soil of our sin and suffering, we will with great joy sell all we have to claim it. Once the tears of brokenness have cleared our eyes to behold the beatific vision of the gospel of God’s grace, we are ready to see the soul-stirring inheritance that is ours in Christ. When we have deeply felt the spiritual poverty of self-rule we will be prepared for the riches of the King, which are immeasurable, unsearchable, glorious, and full.And, yes, I am praying my family will have its spiritual eyes opened to taste and see that hot sauce is good. :-)
