Last quote from Tim Keller’s book “The Reason For God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism”.
From Page 181:
The Christian gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued and that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself or less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less. I don’t need to notice myself-how I’m doing, how I’m being regarded-so often.
I don’t have anything to add to this. Other than to say: Awesomeness.
