A man is what he is on his knees before God, and nothing more. ~ Robert Murray M’Cheyne
M'Cheyne understood what it is to kneel before the Lord in prayer. There is nothing like prayer to give you a healthy dose of reality. In those moments your carefully created persona and god-like self-image are dreadfully stripped away and you stand there naked and exposed. In this state you see who you really are...nothing more and nothing less. Thank God that we can be clothed in Christ's righteousness! Those who trust in Him need never be ashamed because their sin is taken away. What Christ has bought let no one despise.
