That self-help guru

God is not our self-help guru, available to use when we need Him. God is not someone we’re trying to fit into our world in order to “bless” our relationships, our careers, our finances, or to help us kick some bad habits. Sin is not reserved for those on death row. We are not good enough on our own. We need to be rescued. We can’t fix ourselves, we can’t make our own way, and we are not the center of the universe. We must see sin as it is, God for who He is, and ourselves as we truly are. That’s where our hearts and grace collide, and freedom begins.—What’s Your Secret? page 108
