Intensity

Our plan for a life of growth in the life of the kingdom of God must be structured around disciplines for the spiritual life. . . .I had learned that intensity is crucial for any progress in spiritual perception and understanding. To dribble a few verses or chapters of scripture on oneself through the week, in church or out, will not reorder one’s mind and spirit – just as a drop of water every five minutes will not get you a shower, no matter how long you keep it up. You need a lot of water at once and for a sufficiently long time, similarly for the written Word.
