Our self-sins and the Cross …

“Given enough time, self-possessiveness, self-indulgence, self-gratification, self-ambition, self-righteousness, all the self-sins, will drive us to the place of abandoning God.
Self-sins lead us to disobedience. And disobedience ultimately leads us to rejection of God and His Word. We will walk away from His love and cut ourselves off from His fellowship.

we must allow Him to cleanse us and root out our deadly self-centeredness. … It is the work of the cross. It is not enough for us to visit Calvary once; the cross must be our constant companion.”

The cross is my constant reminder that in Jesus I am delivered from the tyranny of my self. In Him I am free – free to live. Free to love. Free to praise. Free to please the Father.”

-from p.71-72 of “A Prophet’s Heart” by Charles Brown.
