It is good for us to see our sin, because when we do, our Savior becomes dearer to us. When we are standing tall and strong we do not tend to look at Christ – we don’t need him. But when we fall flat on our faces, overcome with sin and weakness, there is nowhere else for us to look but to the One who has died our death and lived the life we should have lived. God loves broken and contrite hearts, and we don’t acquire those by living victorious Christian life.
