Holiness is natural to the Sons of God.  When situations come in our lives, we should not have to work up an emotion, or suppress what we really feel in order to live holy.  We should walk day-to-day, feeling the emotions of Christ automatically.  But that will not happen if we do not allow it to.  We have to allow … Read More
