Any master of a trade will tell you, it is better to train up an ignorant young man as your apprentice, then to expect obedience from a man who thinks he has already accomplished your trade.
Why has God chosen the weak, the outcast, the wicked, and the sinful to become a part of his Holy Kingdom? Because they will not put themselves first. They will never spit in the face of his teaching. And they will love him with a blazing heart of faith.
It isn’t any more complicated than that. If you want to serve the Sovereign God in Christ, you have to become like a child.
By His Grace
