"With Painful Steps and Slow"


Hi. This is Randy’s conscience. He doesn’t know that I’m doing this, so it’ll be our little secret. Okay? Great.

You see, he was supposed to compose another post in his series on Christian change – sanctification to use the fancy word – and he ‘didn’t get around to it’.

Yeah, right.

Sure he had some extra meetings this week, but that’s a crock, isn’t it? I mean, we all know that if he wanted to, he could have fit in the time. If you all were important to him, as you should be, he would have fit it in. If he really cared, he’d have done it.

But, no, as usual, he loused up. Isn’t it just like him to…

Uh, wait a minute. Did you hear that? Who’s that coming? Uh-oh. I think it’s Grace. Oh, why’s she always have to show up and ruin everything?

Look, I’ve got to run. She spoils all the fun, always saying that Randy’s failures (which are many, I dutifully point out – and he listens, too, when she’s not around) are not to be dredged up and dwelt upon. Something about their being serious and worth mention, but still and always insufficient to bring any condemnation from God or others.

Where’s the fun in that? I mean, what good is it if we don’t dwell upon these things? She’s such a pain.

But I gotta go now. I don’t understand it, but he’s made her the boss.


PS You should know that Randy overslept this morning, too. He…

Okay, I’m gone.

    Very clever way to point out the most amazing aspect of sanctification: grace to huge that it covers all our sin!

    Conscience, you are one tricky dude, but Grace has foiled your schemes once again: Romans 8:1, “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” Note to Randy: Seriously, you are blessed with the gifts of putting God’s truth down on paper and through the spoken word. The wider world needs to benefit from it. G
