Go Back Again and Again

"..the root of all our disobedience is particular ways in which we continue to seek control of our lives through systems of works righteousness.

The way to progress as a Christian is continually to repent and uproot these systems in the same way that we became Christians - by the vivid depiction ( and re-depiction) of Christ's saving work for us, and the abandoning of self-trusting efforts to complete ourselves. We must go back again and again to the gospel of Christ crucified, so that our hearts are more deeply gripped by the reality of what He did and who we are in Him.."
