Have you ever gotten a little rusty at what used to come second nature?
Just like at work, you can’t rely on what yo did twenty years ago to get you through - You need to be up to speed with your trade, know the laws, know the rules.
And just like your work, you can’t do something just one time and master it. It takes consistency, perseverance, ingenuity, drive, ambition, courage, education, knowledge and a lot of practice to get good at and stay good at anything.
Just like with your work or your calling, you can’t die to Christ one time and find fulfillment.
You must die to self."
