My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

He Gives You You
Why is your opinion of yourself so important? To the degree it is inaccurate is the extent you’ll be living a lie, and no one does that well. However, when a person gets the idea that God’s opinion can be known and that it is both excellent and accurate, his wrestling with himself and with this world diminishes because he no longer needs it to find himself. What a good thing that is. Rest and love and ease around other people are found. So if you’ve got some inner wrestling going on today, consider where you’re looking: in the mirrors of this world, or at Jesus, who gives you. . .well, He gives you you.
