The Man in the Mirror

Ps 64:6
...For the inward mind and heart of a man are deep!

The famous aphorism reads, "Know thyself", and contained therein is much wisdom. Is it not a great part of the Holy Spirit's work in sanctification, the revealing of much of our true selves? If we have Christ ever before us, this view of who and what we really are is cause for much humbling and self-loathing, and the precursor to more seeking after God.

Let not hope fade as our depravity is brought to the light. God is faithful and He will not leave us as we are. The desires of the righteous He shall fulfill, and what greater desire is there in us but to be changed, to be as Christ.

Faith, hope, and love, let these abound as we wait for mortality to be swallowed up in the victory of sanctification consummated: glory.
