Christ reverses the bent of our nature by leading us out of Me-Ville and into the city of God. That act ennobles and humbles us all at the same time because it admits of our need—we are unable to redirect ourselves, unable to fulfill the heroic needs of the story we find ourselves in—and it brings us to a direct encounter with the creator and sustainer of all that is seen and unseen. The way out of Me-Ville is unavoidably through Jesus.
