Are You Self-Aware?

They say “ignorance is bliss.”  It has always been my contention that ignorance is merely ignorance.  I do not believe that genuine bliss can contain ignorance.  Certainly when one is unaware they do not “worry” about their situation, but when informed with reality their is no true “happiness.”

If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us (1 Jn. 1:8).

The reality of our situation is one of sin.  We are sinners in need of grace.  Ignoring this fact may give one an excuse to live in their own fantasy world, but it does not change the reality of their situation.

Rather than live in the myth of my own goodness, I pray that I understand the reality of my sin and I live in the reality of God’s grace.
