Drifting into godliness

On Wednesday nights our adult Bible study group is going through a video series on Philippians led by Matt Chandler. It is simply good stuff.

Reflecting on Philippians 3:12-15, Chandler said this at one point:

No one has ever drifted into godliness.

We need a hunger. We need a striving. We need to keep asking, “HOW do I know God better?” and then ACT on it. We need a holy dissatisfaction that keeps us moving forward.

Here’s the thing: We know this about any other discipline or job worth doing. Why do we treat our Christianity so differently… and with such indifference?
