My Need for Jesus

I was talking with a friend from school today just about this semester and the transitions that I've experienced with graduating last December, coming back from my first missions trip to Thailand, and then getting a job. I've struggled in a lot of ways, but a lot of it was due to the fact that I wasn't expecting the transitions to be as difficult as they were. I didn't prepare, and I was blindsided by the difficulties.

One of the reasons that I've struggled is that I have arrogantly been blinded to much of my sin. As I was talking to this friend, I was reminded that when I don't see my sin, I also miss out on my need for the Lord Jesus. And the less I see my need for Him, the more I struggle. The less I think I need Him, the more apathetic I become. And since all of my desires and needs ultimately find their fulfillment in Him, I find myself empty when I do not seek Him.

When I do not pursue Christ, I miss out on what is the most beautiful and marvelous life that I can experience. May the God of grace, the giver of all good gifts, give us such a true and right and extensive perspective on our sin that we can only, only, look to His precious Son.
