No Room for Almost

By Max Lucado image

“We don’t live following our sinful selves, but we live following the Spirit.” Romans 8:4

ALMOST. How many times do these six letters find their way into despairing epitaphs?

“She almost chose not to leave him.” “He almost became a Christian.”

Jesus . . . demands absolute obedience. He never has room for “almost” in his vocabulary. You are either with him or against him . . . With the Master, “almost” is just as good as “never.”
