Trying to get your point across? Where do you really want to get to in your passionate defence of your views or position?
We all like to be right, to have our solution affirmed and our opinions justified. It’s not always easy getting to that point but there’s a certain amount of (self) satisfaction in getting there.
Whilst a well thought out argument or a slick presentation may justify our position, nothing will justify our inherent status. Humanity is separated from God by sin: this is a wrong that can’t be put right by any means at our disposal however sophisticated or brilliant they might be.
As we explore our relationship with God, we begin by recognising that it is only Christ who can really deal with the ultimate wrong in our lives. It is God’s work but we have to receive it for it to be effective.
