Two fatal words:
“What I’m doing is working for me.”
“I don’t need direction, instruction or change.”
“I’m doing good.”
“Sure, I’m not perfect but I’m doing better than a lot of people.”
If I’m not aware of where I can and need to grow I have already been deceived to the point of blindness.
If I’m not growing, either I’m not alive or I’m dying.
Death is resident in the world and is working against and in all of us.
If I can’t see it, I need to cry out to Jesus that I might receive sight so I can see the death in me, confess it to Christ that He may heal it so I can live.
This never stops being true, even if -no, especially if, I’m a Christian.
