Held Tight

If we are not growing in awareness of our personal sin and depravity and our profound need for grace…then we are not growing closer to a holy God. We are growing closer to spiritual narcissism. Blindness and denial to personal sin is the fertile soil in which idolatry, heresy, and narcissism grows. The love and grace of Jesus Christ radically transforms the ones who understand how profoundly they need him.
