I like contrast in art. I love the way you can make something pop by employing high contrast. Whites are whiter when when put against black and vice versa. 

In the same way, we see grace brighter when when realize the plight, the depth of our sin. Maybe you wonder if a revelation of your wickedness is helpful. It is, so long as it points you back to God, puts you right back at the feet of Jesus with a fresh desperation.  

So then, part of the Christian's journey is this cycle: to be continually refreshed on how deeply sinful they are and how absolutely saved they are. This process, as far as I know, never ends. The good news is that you'll more and more become aware of the beautiful thing God has done for you.
