New Life/New Sin

If you have a new relationship with Christ
do you also have a new relationship with sin?

I had to think about that for a while.
I guess I get it.
When we come to know Christ, we see our sin in a new light.
Our selfishness becomes that much more evident.
As we look at Christ, our own unworthiness and sin seem so much darker.
The closer I've gotten to the Lord...the less I'm impressed with myself.

Usually when I start to feel pretty good about me, I'm not looking at the Lord.
The times I feel that I'm pretty darn great are the times that I'm not in awe of
God's perfection.
When I look to Him, I grow strangely dim.

If only I didn't struggle so much to keep my eyes on Him...
