Romans 10:1-4

Romans 10:1-4
English Standard Version (ESV)

 Ignorance is tough.  We see it easily in the world around us, lamenting the ignorance of individuals or crowds or groups.  It's easy to find and demean.
  It's pretty tough to notice in ourselves.  We cling to the view that we're too smart to fall for such traps, that we would never do such a thing... but remember, everyone we're labeling as ignorant is often thinking the same thing about themselves.
  Following Christ requires a great deal of humility.  We have to be willing to see ourselves as broken, as fallen, as sinful.  Only when we see ourselves this way do we begin to recognize how deeply we need a Savior and how grateful we should be to have Christ love us the way he loves.
