Passage: John 1:36

Withering In Self-righteousness

And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, 
Behold the Lamb of God!

JOHN 1:36

I've never met a Christian who desired too much of himself; but I have met some who, for some reason or another, expected too much of themselves. I mean this: they look at themselves, at the old Adamic nature, and expect to see it improving, getting better or more holy, but that shall never be! If, indeed, one looks at himself and feels progressively cleaner, purer, and holier, he isn’t “growing in grace” but “withering in self-righteousness!” Even a casual examination of self will reveal that such a person’s need of Christ is diminishing rather than increasing, and that is not grace!

The more we look at Christ crucified, the more we will mourn for sin. Look at the cross until all that is on the cross is in your heart. He who was pierced is your God, your maker, your benefactor, and best friend.
