“The reason Christians do not glorify and enjoy God more is that they do not look beyond themselves. They look into themselves, finding either demoralizing failure or (far worse) an illusion of success. They live in either self-hatred or self-admiration. But either way, they are bound up within themselves, with far too little certainty and joy. But the gospel emphasizes what God does – God in all the fullness of his being for all the need that you have. That is encouraging” – Ray Ortlund Jr.
That is refreshing.
