Welcome to another week. As Christians, we’ve been given a fresh chance to delight in God’s goodness, to proclaim his glory, to serve him gladly. As you go through your day, wrap your brain around this quote from John Stott:
The essence of sin is man substituting himself for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for man. Man asserts himself against God and puts himself where only God deserves to be; God sacrifices himself for man and puts himself where only man deserves to be.
Can’t help but be blessed thinking about that. He deserves all our praise. Let’s follow hard after God this week. It’s more than we deserve.
