Swept Along in My River

I loved the warning I picked out of Chambers in Utmost today:

"Beware of some surrender that you make to God in an ecstatic moment in your life, because you are apt to take it back again."

Commitment to our Lord should be heartfelt, but reasoned out. No rash vows, no bursts of pep rally mania. You can never be a solid as Jesus, but your commitment should be as solid as you can make it. It should be for eternity. You need to think of it as such.

The only river I want to be pulled along in the current of is Jesus Christ.
