The gospel is not about what you do and it’s not about what I do.
This week especially, I’ve felt the weight of my sin.
It can be crippling and deafening.
It makes you hate yourself and hate the world.
It can make you feel guilty and shameful and not right with God.
Or at least that’s what it does to me.
Some days it is really hard to honor God and display his glory.
I want to. Oh how desperately I want to.
But before I know it I’m not.
I’m not even doing things I want to, only to look back later and realize it was mistake.
Instead, I do exactly what I don’t want to do.
To use Paul’s words,
“I do not understand what I do.
For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do” (Romans 7:15).
