Stark Naked Before God

The human heart is of pride. We would rather die than repent, rather lose ourselves than humble ourselves. But we cannot escape the embarrassment of one day standing stark naked before God. It is no use trying to cover up like Adam and Eve in the garden. Our attempts will be meaningless. We will have to acknowledge our nakedness, and see our substitute wearing our filthy rags. May we allow Him to clothe us with His righteousness.

Good Friday thoughts after reading: “Naked Pride” – John Stott

I love choosing freedom and joy and bringing others along with me on the journey. :) I am a child of God,…a gold miner… a treasure hunter, a mentor, a life coach, a spiritual director, once a traditional church pastor – now a church planter of disciple making movements, a teacher, a researcher, a hungry prayer warrior, a loyal friend, a fellow traveller and an avid explorer. 🙂
