Christ releases us from ourselves to see/love God and others.
Apart from Christ, we are nothing less than chained to our own fear and insecurity. The misery of self.
If you are in Christ, look out. Look at people and love them with one-way love. Same goes with your interaction with God. As you look out, don’t sweat you… Your needs, fears, desires, etc.
It is either about him or you. He’s got you covered so be about Him and others.
