Cross-Centered Humility: A "Glorious Spiritual Destitution"

". . . The great irony is that the door through which we experience the profundity of God’s love is the complete humiliation and abasement of ourselves at the foot of the cross. . . . The blessing of knowing God in the fullness of his love comes to us to the degree that we become poor in spirit. This glorious spiritual destitution belongs to those who hear what the cross teaches us about man and his nature."

William P. Farley, Outrageous Mercy, pp. 70-71

This book is a wonderful admonition toward a Cross-Centered and Gospel-Grounded worldview. Highly recommended reading.
