Just ran across Spurgeon’s quote, “Beware of no man more than of yourself…we carry our worst enemies within us.” While running this morning, I was listening to Todd Agnew and his song “If You Wanted Me” where he questions why God made us so prone to fall in love with the world, which is similar in theme to Spurgeon’s thought. Agnew starts the song referencing Peter’s walking on water, which is really a clever start to the song. Through God, all things are possible to those who believe in the name of Christ. God reveals his strength and grace through his act of saving us and thereafter perfecting us, and His strength and grace are so apparent precisely because we are so inherently and naturally fallen and hostile to what is holy. He overcomes and transforms our black hearts. To Christ alone goes all the glory for creation, salvation and sanctification. With mysterious love and through his power, He enables us to accomplish things we could never accomplish on our own. God is great.
