How Much of God?

We all want God, but many of us want Him in safe measures.

We want enough fear of God to keep us going in the right direction, but not so much as to get us in trouble.  After all, the fear of man cannot abide with the fear of man. Won’t the fear of man keep us safe?

We want enough faith to look good, but not so much as to be labeled fanatics (or worse).

We want enough grace to cover ourselves and our own weaknesses, but we fear what might happen if there’s enough grace for the prostitute.

I like to think of myself as a great Christian, but when God starts speaking to me on these terms, everything looks different somehow. With godly determination I say, “All of God!”
