Quotes Worth Pondering – Tim Keller

QuotesWorthPondering“(Jesus) did not come primarily to be a good example. And I am glad He didn’t. Do you know why? He’s too good! He’s so perfect that as an example He just crushes you into the ground. Anyone who really, seriously, seeks to make Him a life model, who pays attention to the details of his character and practice, will despair. He is infinitely beyond us, and comparing yourself to him will only grind your genuine aspirations to moral excellence into hopelessness. But we see here that He didn’t come to tell us how to save ourselves but to save us Himself.” (from Encounters with Jesus)
