If we think it is too much to be always obedient and dependent, then we are catering to the flesh. The real question is, Do we want to walk in the power of the new creation or the old? True happiness is to be found in walking in the light in the judgment of ourselves, and in looking to the Lord for everything. Why should we wish to retain the flesh after we have rejoiced in our deliverance from it? Why should we not be walking in the consciousness of the love of God and of Christ? But the world and other things may be so allowed that we scarcely know what Christian life really is. (Rom. 14:1717For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. (Romans 14:17) and 15:13.)
