Have I mentioned how much I love to hear the testimonies of other believers? It is so awesome to hear how God worked in their lives!
This young man makes such a realization. He says God began to expose him to himself. I remember when God began to show me just who Mandy really was. I had always believed I was a "good person". I knew I wasn't perfect, but I definitely didn't understand how completely flawed I was.
I believed I was a person who "made mistakes sometimes". Then God revealed I was a sinner. I was not a sinner because I sinned. I SINNED because I was a sinner. My sins were just a reflection of who I really was inside. My sinful thoughts and deeds came from my flesh. My flesh did not know how not to sin. Even my best came from a sinful place.
It is amazing when God lifts the veil from our eyes and we clearly see ourselves in the mirror. I believe it is that vision that leads us to the feet of Christ. It is then we understand our desperate need of a Savior.
