The Self-focus of Self-condemnation


So long as we focus upon shortcomings we want to correct in ourselves in order to be (or to appear) more worthy, we are off-base.  Christ covered the whole of our sin at the Cross; we do not need to push forward in determination to do a better job. Our daily challenge is to fall back into the forgiveness purchased us by Christ.  It is only from a perspective of  giving way to the blessed forgiveness that is ours through the Cross that we can say (and mean it) "Thy will be done."  

Lord release us from the self-focus of self-condemnation, and direct our focus, energies, and labors to those of Your choosing for us.  

Thy will be done.
