"For every look at self—take ten looks at Christ! Live near to Jesus—and all things will appear little to you in comparison with eternal realities.” (McCheyne) How are we changed? Contrary to what we might think, it isn’t by dwelling on our sin. That doesn’t mean our sin is not of profound significance and consequence… but rather that the way we change is not by seeing how bad we are but how beautiful Christ is. In the Gospel of John, Jesus made seven statements where he said something about himself. He said “I AM.” Let’s listen to Jesus, gaze upon his beauty, and rejoice.
