Oy… it gets on my nerves how much hypocrisy is in my heart. I feel like my worst enemy right now is myself… -_- Oh jeez…
I think I’m gonna be very careful to how I listen to some of these teachings that are given to me when I look at commentary or listen to a sermon. Some of them, in reading, can feel a bit burdensome both in my heart and in my spirit, making me feel like I’m not doing enough for the Lord. I think some of the writers are only doing it out of concern or personal belief, which is good, but otherwise, I’m scared of taking a yoke of bondage on my heart like I did before in order to conform to a certain theology that’s “acceptable.”
Don’t get me wrong, I love commentaries. In fact, I’m thankful there’s so many out there and that I could just simply look them up according to the teachers that I trust are good. Yet, there is a temptation that I should follow these more than I should follow what the scriptures themselves are telling me through the Spirit. I know that when He’s involved, my heart will definitely burn for The Word.
I just love it when that happens. x3
