John Bradshaw - Autopilot
A lot of the time a commercial airline that is in flight, it's on autopilot. It's being flown less by the pilot and more by computerized navigation systems.
And we're very glad that it works very well, but while autopilot works for planes, it doesn't work for Christians. You don't come to Jesus, and then cruise. That's the enemy of real Christianity.
Paul said in Colossians 3:1, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above".
After you've come to Christ, actively seek, pursue the things that are above. Evil has to be actively resisted. And when you just wander along in your Christian experience without taking actual care about that, when you stop being intentional about your faith, no longer mindful of looking for the things of Christ, that's when you're on a slippery slope. Today, seek those things which are above. I'm John Bradshaw for it is written
