Isn't It Weird?

Isn't it weird how before we become a Christian, we think we're pretty good people. We believe that we've arrived. After we become a Christian, or rather just before that decision is made, God opens our eyes to the wretched state of affairs that is our lives. From that point onward the closer we get to becoming like Jesus, the more clearly we see how much further we need to go. We see that we aren't anywhere close to arriving. In fact we've just barely begun. And here's the real kicker. The more clearly we see our true nature, the better we feel because with each click of reality, Jesus infuses Himself into our inner being. Isn't that weird?
