Ham: concentration and training

Wednesday, January 31, 2024
    Commemoration of John Bosco, Priest, Founder of the Salesian Teaching Order, 1888
    Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
    —Ephesians 6:13 (NIV)
    Groups that require little of their membership count for little outside their membership. Real spiritual capacity requires at least as much concentration and training as learning to play a musical instrument. Nobody has ever drifted into a genuine Christian experience.
    ... William T. Ham, “Candles of the Lord”, in Spiritual Renewal through Personal Groups, John L. Casteel, ed., NY: Association Press, 1957, p. 171 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 6:12-18; Matt. 11:29-30; 1 Cor. 9:25; 2 Cor. 10:3-5; 1 Tim. 1:18-19; 6:12; 2 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 12:4; Jas. 1:12; 1 Pet. 5:2-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, move us to desire Your instruction.
