Reflecting

Funny how the more I learn, the more I realize I need to learn more. The more I grow in Christ, the more I realize I need to grow. The more sin I see in my life, the more I sin I realize I need to repent – and the more I am aware of my desperate need for a Saviour. Instead of getting discouraged about the depravity of my sinful nature, I need to look to Christ’s shed blood as my sole atonement for sin and deepen my gratitude for His sacrifice. Lord, may I grow ever closer to you, may your grace and the work of the Holy Spirit in my heart make me more Christ-like each day. May I grow more holy and yearn for the day when your children will be made perfect in glorification. Break my sinful pride and mold me into the godly man you want me to be. May I rely on your mercy, grace, and promises for strength and boldness in telling others of the mercy you have shown me. Come, Lord Jesus!
