Broken, blind, defiled, and in denial.
These are the labels we wear outside of Christ. And, as long as we remain in denial, we vehemently deny it. Doesn’t change a thing.
We’re broken. Blind. Defiled. And trying to cover it all up with denial-fig-leaves.
Until God puts a spiritual mirror in front of us and gives us a glimpse of reality. Yes, God makes us miserable – or, to put a finer point on it, God exposes our awful misery while shaking us out of our senselessness.
Ironically, it is the recognition of our hopeless moral sickness that leads us to the Savior.
