Instant maturity?

From Transformed! a recent(ish) post by Nancy Leigh DeMoss on Tim Challies blog:

Does your Christian life look a bit like this:

Commit. Fail. Confess.

Re-commit. Fail again. Confess again.

Re-re-commit. Fail again. Give up.

Reading this is like seeing myself in a mirror, it is exactly how my Christian life is. Nancy goes on to discuss our longing for quick-fixes’, some reasons why they don’t work and a few tips on getting ourselves moving in the right direction. All good stuff and I recommend reading the article.
