Don’t be a spiritual tramp

I am currently reading The Indwelling life of Christ by Ian Major Thomas. I loved the following quote:

Are you bewildered about your Christian experience? You know you are redeemed, but beneath the outward practice and profession of your faith you are conscious of the inner nagging of a troubled spirit. True inner peace eludes you, and you sigh for release. Perhaps like many others you have said to yourself, “I need a new church home, a new spiritual environment.”

If you try out yet another new church, all that will happen is that you will simply encounter as much trouble as you found in the last one. There is nothing wrong with your spiritual environment, but there is something desperately wrong with you. If you fail to correct that, you will be a spiritual tramp all the days of your life.
