I don't feel or act very lovable most of the time. Yet, I still want to be accepted the way I am. I want to be loved. Only Christ loves me like that. And even then, He doesn't allow me to stay the way I am, He requires that I change. That I look like Him. Why do I expect to be loved perfectly by someone else when both of us are sinners in need of grace? Only Christ can fulfill my deepest need. Perfectly.
