You don’t have to be good…

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?

Yes. 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.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
