I have 2 big problems. (More if you ask those who know me) The first is that I do not see how small and helpless and broken and useless I am and the second is that I do not see how big and capable and perfect (Holy, Holy, Holy) and useful God is. When I get a glimpse of both of these at once something incredible happens. I exhibit God's bigness (while still being so very small), I exhibit God's ability and usefulness and helpfulness while still appearing to be helpless (meekness demonstrated) and I show God's perfections through my imperfections.
When I go to the Doctor I hope he is judgmental. I know this sounds a little strange, but if he can not make a judgment concerning my health then I am in a lot of trouble. All improvement in my health, healing from disease and brokenness depends upon his judgment.
Many today reject the Old Testament as obsolete. They see Jesus’ words about the law as doing away with the law.
