ENCOUNTER Series | How long does it take?

How long does it take to be holy, to be an intentional disciple? Months? Years? A lifetime? Yes. It requires patience and hope; your heart must sense how much God loves you. If we measure our spiritual advances, we come up short. Our pride is hurt. Don’t count your achievements. Count your blessings. Fall into God’s heart. Be lifted up by His grace. He loves you just as you are, not for what you do. God is waiting to lead you, move you and shape you.
Into His Likeness, Edward Sri, p. 66-67.
