Friend, do you know yourself?

08 Dec

The persuasive worldview of our society views human beings as basically good.  Therefore, if we need God at all, it is only in a limited way.  However, the Biblical worldview is in direct conflict with this common assumption.

The following is taken from Titus 3:3 as Paul describes sinners prior to their conversion to Jesus Christ, “For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice andd envy, hated by others and hating one another.”

Perhaps this is not how you think of yourself today or thought of yourself in the past, yet this is exactly how God sees you outside of Jesus Christ.  The powers of Satan and sin deceive us in this way in order to make us think much more highly of ourselves than we ought, and the result is that we do not see our need for a Savior.
