The picture made me smile….why not me?
There are a few paradoxes that can be hard to wrap one’s brain around. In faith the most obvious one is the idea of being a sinner, none is righteous, no, not one, and for all have sinned, contrasted against the sheer ecstasy of having been claimed, redeemed, washed, freed, a saint now walking in victory, Christ’s victory. Grace is a thing that just compels you to truly understand what it means to be a wretch like me and yet, conversely now a saint. Humility yes, but also it is nearly impossible not to walk around feeling like the cat that just swallowed the cream. God is not only real, He loves me. Hallelujah!
There’s another paradox, a false one, often inadvertently promoted by prosperity preachers, that suggests come to Christ and and your life will magically become easy, you’ll suddenly become healthy and prosperous, all suffering will cease. Well…yes…
