Quote of the Week

"We have met the enemy and he is us."


I really like this quote because it very accurately describes who and what is hindering us in our walk with the Lord. There is no outside force or "dark side" that bludgeons us into our wrongs. No. It is the power of sin which lives inside us that causes us to sin. Blame some else all you want but when the rubber meets the road the one who is held accountable is us. And that is exactly what God does. Unless our faith is placed in and on the actions of another (Christ), God will judge us by the law, of which we will surely fall far short. God calls us to look inside ourselves, examine our hearts and recognize ourselves as the sinners we are and the righteousness that Christ is for us. That is why I like this quote.
