When we ask the wrong questions we always get the wrong answers. It is obvious that when we yield to sin, we should deal with it. But we can’t really fix our root problems! In the parable of the wheat and the tares Jesus warned that when we try to pull out the tares (fix ourselves) we will pull out the wheat and possibly do more damage.
Those who truly desire to live a godly, loving life will never reach that goal by trying to remove all that’s wrong. We’ll only do it by acknowledging all that is right about us as a result of being in Jesus (Philemon 1:6). There is a spiritual law that teaches where we place our focus determines what grows in our life. If we want the character and nature of Christ to grow in us, that must be the focus of our attention.
All the life and power of Christ is in us and because Christ is in us it has been freely given; we can’t get more of Christ in us. But we can make that the focus of our attention. When this reality, Christ is in me and I am Christ, is the focus of our faith, the grace (power) of God manifests in us to bring those qualities to life.
