How to Shrink to Your True Size

“Every time we look at the cross Christ seems to say to us,

‘I am here because of you. It is your sin I am bearing, your curse I am suffering, your debt I am paying, your death I am dying.’

Nothing in history or in the universe cuts us down to size like the cross.

All of us have inflated views of ourselves, especially in self-righteousness, until we have visited a place called Calvary.

It is there, at the foot of the cross, that we shrink to our true size.”

- John R. W. Stott, The Message of Galatians, p. 179
