Over the past two months, I’ve given in to a quite dismal outlook on things in general. To put it quite simply, I lost my enthusiasm about life in general. The reason for this, is that I lost sight, temporarily, of the Sovereignty of Almighty God; and the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ to His own: each one, in particular.
I believe this is pretty much the norm when one begins to look at themselves and turns their gaze away from the Lord Jesus Christ, resulting in one seeing only his own total bankruptcy, and losing sight of the all-sufficiency of Christ.
From the time of Abraham, when God imputed righteousness to him, resulting in Abraham’s faith in God, salvation is clearly disclosed as being by grace through faith in Almighty God, and no other way (Please Read Romans 4:1-8).
I feel, since these things are so, that I should fess up. The most terrible sin in the world is hypocrisy: pretending to be something that you’re not. In my particular case; pretending to be “All for Jesus,” and not being that in any way. As the plaque on Harry Truman’s desk declared, the buck stops here. I will exhibit the gift of Christ’s imputed righteous, and will trust Him to make me that, which by nature, I’m not. Please pray for me.
Thank you, and God bless all of you!
