1. We do not choose our struggles, but there is One who has chosen to always be with us.
  2. How can we be sure that we are getting a “solid spiritual diet” and not a “milky” one?
  3. The more awareness we have that we are weak and low and frail and incapable of doing this thing called life, the more perfectly we are positioned to meet the God of grace.
  4. You’re not new because of what you do. You’re new and so you do new things, even in spite of yourself, because of your sinful nature.
  5. When we stop looking to Christ in faith, we are walking in sin. Anything (including our supposed law-keeping) that does not proceed from faith is sin.
