|"You're not good enough, and never will be."|
What?!?! That's outrageous. How dare you damage my self esteem. That's abuse!
Yet, those eight little words are what the celebration of the Lord's Resurrection is all about. Tomorrow is Easter (or Resurrection Sunday), the day that Christianity remembers that Jesus paid the ultimate price on that cross long ago......and then conquered death and rose again. I think those 8 little words explain it all. We are all sinners. We all deserve eternal death and punishment. We are not good enough, and never will be! Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
There is a way......only one way. And that is the path that Christ gave us with his death on that cross. He took MY punishment......he took your punishment. It's O.K. that I'm not good enough....He is! Romans 10:9,10 says, " because if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
It's so simple......and yet so hard. We like to do it ourselves, be in control. And yet all God asks is for simple faith.
