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
