Wilkerson believes that Christians have a heavenly calling to be free from the world--and even noble or seemingly "godly" pursuits can crowd out Christ's presence in everyday life. In these turbulent times, we must remain faithful in Christ and grow in our love for Him, which is the only way we can carry out our tasks.
