“I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death.”
I will not see Him clearly until I see Him only.
I will not experience His strength until I stop depending on my own.
I will not know Him as my shelter until I stop building my own shelters. He does not consent to be the insulation in a shelter I built.
I will know Him as my teacher when I stop teaching myself and learn from Him.
Jesus Christ is not complementary.
