I spent some time yesterday and the day before writing and compiling some, hopefully, helpful information for our church home group. I was reminded of a curious thing while doing so. Information about the Christian faith and the Bible is pretty readily available and not very expensive in terms of $$, though quality can vary. Without diminishing the value of information and truth, the truly challenging thing - and costly, though not necessarily in terms of $$ - is making God's truth real in our lives. It's one thing to know something; it's quite another to live what one knows. It's one thing to learn information; it's a much more difficult process to build what one has learned into one's character. The making doing one's life and the rebuilding of character requires the work of God and the fellowship of God's people.
