Luke 18 - Humility -> Justification

"God, have mercy on me, a sinner."

Why is it so hard for me to humiliate myself and look at who I am, a sinner. That doesn't preclude me from doing what God wants me to do, it doesn't define who I am. It is the place from which I must approach God. That is what he calls us to do, what we are called to recognize.

We are all lovingly created children of God. He knows each hair of our head and each thing we've done wrong, but he still loves us. This is why we can, no we must, approach Him from a place of humility. It is when we approach God from the place of feeling like we are nothing that we begin to rely on Him instead of on ourselves. That is where real strength and real power come from.
