Episode Notes

“Properly understood, Christianity is by no means the opiate of the people. It’s more like the smelling salts.” – Tim Keller

When we lose sensitivity, we settle for sensuality.

I am either ruled by my passions or by God’s passionate love for me.  In any given moment, only one rules me – either God or my desires.  We are either satisfied with the good things from our relationship with God, or we are never satisfied pursuing our appetites for the things of this world.

I am always drifting towards making idols out of the things of this world instead of being satisfied with enjoying them in their proper limited role.

 As my imagination is redeemed, I fall more in love with God.  This makes me want to practice the art of Christian disciplines and morality. As I practice  Christian disciplines and morality, my imagination is redeemed. 

I am no longer who I was but not yet who I will be.
