When grace is multiplied toward you, you are not barren. Neither are you a victim. You are a victor, fruitful in the Lord Jesus Christ. Otherwise, you are blind and cannot see afar off to what awaits you in eternity.
The problem? Spiritual vision becomes dim when you are not fellowshipping with God on the inside. You have forgotten that you were purged from old sins. Though you are saved, you don't have any joy in being saved. You have forgotten what grace did for you because you are not growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
The moment we turn inward to analyze our condition, we only compound the problem. As we have said in so many different ways, we need to see our provision. We need to gaze upon the Lamb of God.
