Our Greatest Problem is Not the Reality of Our Sin

Perhaps our greatest problem is not the reality of our sin, but our unbiblical expectations of what Christian growth should look like.  What if growing in grace is more about humility, dependence and exalting Christ than it is about our defeating sin?  How would that impact our struggle with sin and our Joy in Christ as we continue to live as weak sinners in a fallen world?  Surely it would make all the difference in the world.
