Have you ever faced a situation when intimate spirituality met the proverbial Big Mac on the road to maturation? When the idea of holy relationship as endless feast faded into the occasional drive-thru experience? Has Christianity ever been like fast food religion to you? If so, you’re not alone.
In today’s world, many struggle with the concept of daily communion with God. And despite 21st century transparency, confusion continues to spread as more self-proclaimed believers reference God only when absolutely necessary. Ironically, the problem with partial desire lies in a blindness to itself. As a culture, we’re adulterating worship with false substitutes. Instead of the absolute, we prize the irresolute; instead of glorification, we prefer desensitization to sacred wonder, in part, so we can ditch accountability to what truly matters. And as commitment compromises, we lose equitable sight on key relational truths, such as why a consecrated lifestyle and godly fear are essential and how holistic holiness connects to our true identity.
