Too egocentric? All the ” MEs”. The passivity. All by Jesus,rather than the surrender of all to him.
The sitting back without acknowledgement of what lies between us and our Saviour.
Before coming to him with our shopping list of ills let us name them! Let us surrender our weaknesses,fears and all other bricks we know make that wall between God and ourselves ;before our refusal or laziness become an insurmountable barrier between the love of God and our forgiveness.
Name them one by one and allow the wall to fall revealing our utter nakedness before the Creator. You know me Lord, I offer you my weaknesses as I name them,one by one,and You will cast them aside into the perpetual blaze of Your Love.
