Remembering Elisabeth Elliot: Day 24

Anastasis Faith
“The Word of God I think of as a straight edge, which shows up our own crookedness. We can’t really tell how crooked our thinking is until we line it up with the straight edge of Scripture.”
-Elisabeth Elliot

As a girl raised in a Christian home, I’ve always been “the good girl.” Comparing myself to others fed my pride and made me think, “I’m really not that bad.”

It wasn’t until I started catching glimpses of the holiness of Christ through the pages of Scripture that I realized I wasn’t “not that bad.”

Compared to people around us, we may look pretty good. But the people around us aren’t the standard—it’s the holy God of the universe. Compared to Him, we are filthy.

The Bible shows us what we truly are.

However, it also shows who God is—and He is a gracious God willing to forgive us of our iniquities and make us straight like Him.

Have you considered yourself “pretty good?” When has God showed you His holiness in the Bible and convicted you of your own sin? Share in the comments!
