So where does that put us? Basically, all of us, whether insiders or outsiders, start out in identical conditions, which is to say that we all start out as sinners. Scripture leaves no doubt about it. This makes it clear, doesn’t it, that whatever is written in these Scriptures is not what God says about others but to us to whom these Scriptures were addressed in the first place! And it’s clear enough, isn’t it, that we’re sinners, every one of us, in the same sinking boat with everybody else? In one way or another, God makes sure that we all experience what it means to be outside so that he can personally open the door and welcome us back in. Be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. #Start #Doubt #Experience
