Daily Dose OF Emmet Fox #essentialsofrecovery

True Christianity is an entirely positive influence. It comes into a person's life to enlarge and enrich it,

to make it fuller and wider and better; never to restrict it. You cannot lose anything that is

worth having through acquiring a knowledge of the Truth. Sacrifice there has to be, but it is only

sacrifice of the things that one is much happier without--never of anything that is worth having.

Many people have the idea that getting a better knowledge of God will mean giving up things

that they will regret losing. One girl said: "I mean to take up religion later on when I am older,

but I want to enjoy myself for a while first." This, however, is to miss the whole point.

The things one has to sacrifice are selfishness, fear, and belief in necessary limitation

of any kind. Above all, one has to sacrifice the belief that there is any power or endurance

in evil apart from the power that we ourselves give it by believing in it.
