I had put aside Apostolic Foundations for a few months as the Lord lead into some other things for a period. Tonight I opened it up again to a section dealing with the Cross in our lives (p. 55). Art makes a comment about the effect the Cross makes on a life, effectively killing the seduction that once distracted us so we might faithfully follow after the Master. He then mentions being able to walk through grocery stores and malls, seeing and touching but not being touched by these things. Folks, it's real! Amen, I realized while reading this that the Lord has done this in my life. The desire for the authentic, the real, Christ Himself, puts to death the lusts of the flesh. God Almighty is all glorious!
