The Cross is Not Self-Applied

15 Dec

Jesus did not nail Himself to the cross. Christians who are trapped by this counterfeit are constantly talking about their weaknesses. If the devil finds us uninterested in evil, then he’ll try and get us to focus on our unworthiness and inability… In my own pursuit of God, I often became preoccupied with ME!… Repeated phrases such as ‘I’m so unworthy,’ become nauseating replacements for the declarations of the worthiness of God.
