It is no use to sit down and make detailed lists of self-improvements we are going to begin immediately on Tuesday (or at least Wednesday). The longer the list, the more convinced we become that we are not fit for the journey and never will be. And then we remember—God has done it all. We are made new every day because Christ makes us so. God has already done it.
