This blog includes Christ-centered posts and my personal meditations on Scripture, faith, and loving God and neighbor. I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, seeking to know and love Him more each day. Although imperfect, the thoughts and reflections contained herein are my own and offered with love in Christ to all.
"On the contrary, it is precisely because we cannot forgive or improve ourselves that we need [Jesus Christ] to come to us. But we must be willing for him to do whatever rearranging he likes when he has come in." ~ from Basic Christianity by John Stott
Comment: We have to be empty of self-rule and turn ourselves over to "Christ-rule." Once we let Jesus into our hearts, though, we cannot just sit back and say we have arrived. We must cooperate with his grace. And cooperation entails the cross, sacrifice, and repentance.
