The Christian way is harder and easier.Christ says, Give me all I don't want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work. I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it.
Nor half measures are any good. I do not want to cut off a branch here and a branch there, I want to have the whole tree down. Hand over the natural self, all the desiers which you think innocent as well as the one you think wicked- the whole outfit.
I will give you the new self instead. In fact, I will give you Myself; my own will shall be yours.
Both harder and easier than what we are all trying to do. You have noticed, I expect, the Christ Himself sometimes describes the Christian way as very hard, sometimes very easy. He says, Take up your cross- in other words it is like going to beaten to death in a concentration champ. Next minute he says "My yoke is easy and my burden light" He means both. And one can see why both are true.
