Not only do we not know God saves through Jesus Christ, but we do not know ourselves save through Jesus Christ. We know neither life nor death save through Jesus Christ. Apart from Jesus Christ we know not what our life is, nor our death, nor God, nor ourselves. --Blaise Pascal
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14
I am not sure when I was first exposed to a microscope but I remember jumping back when I saw what that little machine exposed was in a droplet of water from a mud puddle. Little squiggly things, some long, some round, some fat, some short, some with the potential to upset your stomach and I’m sure others with the potential to kill. Outside of seeing those little blessings though, I would have continued to drink from the ponds of nastiness in our driveway!
Hey, if it had not been for the Lord Jesus Christ showing us who we are, we would still be drinking from the puddles this world offers to us! Child of God…that’s something monumental we ought to thank the Lord for! A sound mind that directs us to who we were before Him and then Him giving us the power to become the sons of God! We are nothing without Him!
