Christ died not so that you could freely go on sinning, and therefore, continue dying; He died rather so that you could freely grow in obedience, and therefore, start living.
A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, but an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one.
Never be obedient.
Together we shared a bond not even death would violate.
Experiential truth comes by obedience.
There is something magical and transformational about saying “yes
The love of Christ is always there and unchanging, no matter what we do, but it is when we are obedient that we actually begin to feel it.
The distance between your knowledge of truth and your obedience is called lack of integrity. And the amount of negative behavior–or lack of integrity–a person exhibits is directly proportional to their amount of pain.” – Tara Leigh’s therapist (p.118)
