- Some are searching for fame, and are glad to take online infamy.
- Some are pursuing influence, but settle for people pleasing.
It’s easy to say that we need something better to pursue. I mean, we do, but it’s not that simple. I fear we don’t take sin seriously enough to say that. We are probably more like the Black Knight, with our arms and legs hacked off, shouting, “It’s just a flesh wound,” than any of us would care to admit. And this is where we have to start. We need to take sin seriously: we need to admit to ourselves, even if to no one else, that it really is as bad as God says it is. When we do:
- It helps us see the cost of our own salvation.
- It encourages us to love the gospel more fully.
- It motivates us to pursue others with the hope of Christ.
