Here’s a quick, but soul-helpful quote from C. J. Mahaney on the importance of surrounding yourself with a gospel worldview:

…If we assume the gospel, or neglect the gospel, or neglect to preach the gospel to ourselves on a daily basis, if we do not review and remind ourselves of the doctrines of grace, if we do not prepare our hearts to discern evidences of grace, all we will be left with throughout the day is an increasing awareness of sin and an increasing awareness of adversity.

This thought comes from a larger interview with Mahaney, Jeff Purswell, and Josh Harris on having joy in the Christian Life (especially as a pastor). It is short, but a valuable read.
