Jesus is changing me. How about you?

A Wonderful Depression

leave a comment »


When we begin to come aware of our sinfulness, there is accompaniment of sorrow. I’ve learned to love that sorrow. Not that I appreciate my sin and remain in it because I like being sad. But there’s an aspect to understanding the need for Christ’s work in my life. It’s a continual reminder that the Holiness of God is so much more than we can know in our sinful state.

Paul said, for now we see as through a glass darkly. Then we shall know fully, even as we are fully known. This I look forward to with great expectation and joy. In the present, however, I feel the great sadness of being locked together with this sinful nature.

By His Grace.
