God’s grace is for strugglers,
not for the together ones, the strong, the confident, those above reproach, qualified for leadership because the outsides of their cups are sparkling clean. If you don’t struggle to believe Jesus is totally sovereign over every detail of your life, if you enjoy everyone just as we are, and everything just as it is, if you are strong, wonderful, then grace is not for you. Only strugglers qualify for grace. If you don’t think you struggle, you REALLY need grace, even though you don’t-yet realize it.
— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, whose flesh believes he’s wonderful
