How good is good enough?
James tells us that if we break even one command, the consequence is the same as breaking all the commands!
“For the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as a person who has broken all of God’s laws.” James 2:10
If you have a cup of water and I put one drop of poison in it, will you want to drink it? No! Sin is like poison it infects our whole lives. Even the best people are still guilty before God and separated from him by their sin.
God can not allow any sin to enter his holy presence.
This is why Jesus had to die. He was the only one who lived without breaking even one command! When he died he sacrificed himself in our place.
“One sin can separate us from God and only one sacrifice can save us.” Tweet This
You can not be good enough, but Jesus was good enough for you! He died so that you and I can be united with God and forgiven. Will you trust him with your life and choose to follow him?
Answer this question in the comments section… Why is it so hard for people to believe that we can’t be good enough to be saved?
