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.

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.
