Quote of the year

“It was quite refreshing one night to find in the inquiry room a young man who thought he was not worth saving, he was so vile and wicked. There was hope for him because he was so desperately in earnest about his soul. He thought he was worthless. He had a sight of himself in God’s looking glass and had a very poor opinion of himself. One can always tell when a man is a great way from God–for he is always talking about himself, and how good he is. But the moment he sees God by the eye of faith, he is down on his knees, and, like Job, he cries, "Behold, I am vile." All his goodness flees away.” D.L. Moody

Amen... when we see ourselves in truth of the Scripture, it totally kills all "self esteem" and humbly brings us to our knees, desperately needing Christ's redemption.

Good post Trish, keep up the good work! Soli Deo Gloria!
