There Are No Shortcuts

The temptation to shortcut is especially strong unless we see the value of and submit to the necessity of the time element; in simple trust resting in His hands, “being confident of this very thing, that He which began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). And, dear friends, it will take a long time! But since God is working [for the ages], why should we be concerned about the time involved?
