Truth that will set us free. My how we need that. Thank you Jesus for revealing yourself to us, the Truth who alone can set us free.

Thomas Merton, the most sought-after spiritual guide of our time, said one day to a fellow monk, "If I make anything out of the fact that I am Thomas Merton, I am dead. And if you make anything out of the fact that you are in charge of the pig barn, you are dead." Merton's solution? "Quit keeping score altogether and surrender yourself with all your sinfulness to God who sees neither the score nor the scorekeeper but only his child redeemed by Christ."

Or as Major Ian Thomas says, "The Christian life can only be explained in terms of Jesus Christ, and if your life as a Christian can still be explained in terms of you, your personality, your willpower, your gift, your talent, your money, your courage, your scholarship, your dedication, your sacrifice, or your anything, then although you may have the Christian life, you are not yet living it!"

Anytime we change our focus from ourselves to God we do well.
