Quote: Thought Possible

Your Christian life takes an entire lifetime, so if you measure yourself on good days and bad days, you’ll be unapproachably prideful or you’ll randomly fall into self-loathing. If you can rest in God’s everlasting infinitely steadfast love, you’ll not only relax, but you’ll be more motivated than you ever were to follow the mission of Jesus. Grace is the only discipline that can enforce itself. It is the progress of no progress, a walk towards ‘It is finished.’ Before you know it, you’ll be focused on what’s ahead instead of what’s behind: and you’ll have come so much further along than you thought possible without even really noticing.

— J.S.

  1. Amen, I think we all fall into the see-saw trap of pride/self loathing (at least I do). I find myself there on occasion even though I know that my sanctification is worked by God’s good grace through out my entire life.


    1. Always reminded of Tim Keller’s quote:
      “The Christian gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me.”
