I was listening to the radio on the way to Spokane today and was reminded of a very important truth.
You do not have to be good to get into heaven.
Thats a relief.
You don’t have to be good, you have to be perfect.
Wait, what? Perfect? It was hard enough to be good but I have be perfect?
I cannot be perfect. It’s impossible for me to be perfect. That is very true. But to get into heaven I have to be perfect? What am I going to do?
Run to Jesus. Jesus’ perfection is transferable. The blood of Jesus covers over all our “non-goodness” and all God sees is the perfection of Jesus. I am perfect, but only when covered in the blood of my perfect savior.
