Why is it SO hard for we humans to admit our weakness and cry out to God:
“You must do this, for I can not!”
When we truly “get this” we will be able to begin training our mind and heart to follow Christ, to walk with God.
Until then, at best, we are well meaning people following other well meaning people. Who are you following?
Does the level of peace in your life show it? Or are you overwhelmed by getting through the struggles of life?
Be careful of following a leader who is “certain” of the direction he has laid out and “strives to achieve.”
Rather, follow Christ who excelled in humility and sought to bring glory to his Father.
To whom are we bringing glory?
Cry out like a tax collector:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour, have mercy on me, the sinner.
