And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God be merciful to me a sinner’. -Luke 28: 13.

After we've been Christians for a while it can be easy to forget that despite our new, reborn status, we still fall short of the glory of God. By great grace and the awesome power of the Holy Spirit, Our Lord continues to reveal the dark places of our soul--places that still need His light. All we have to do is crave spiritual progress. The more access we give the Spirit, the faster we grow into the image of our Savior Jesus. Today, be confident that when you open your heart, He always responds with an abundance of mercy, power and love.
