You see, when God sees you now, he mostly sees himself. He sees someone clothed with Christ’s righteousness and filled with Christ’s resurrection power. It’s not that he minimizes the sin and rebellion of your heart. He actually knows it much better than you do. But in Christ, he sees the perfect son or daughter that you have a hard time glimpsing.
This is why God asks you to live such a miraculous life: He’s not betting on you.
