“The other reason the love of human glory is contradictory to faith is that faith is a drinking of living water for the satisfaction of our souls. And the well of that water is the glory of Christ.

It has been some time since I brought this video back up to remind myself of my desperate condition and the reality that all of us face.  Only the Gospel answers all of this man’s questions and only the Gospel helps us to be honest with what we know about ourselves and hide from others.  Only the Gospel explains that there is more mercy in Christ than sin in us.  May we humble ourselves before His mighty hand and look to the cross for the only solution for our sinfulness and God’s holiness…the mediator between the two…Christ Jesus our Lord.
