This Morning, I was reminded again of how inadequate I am and how adequate grace for me is, an excerpt from my devotional said;
” If you prayed every moment of your life, you could not pray enough prayers to earn acceptance with God,
If you gave every penny of every dollar that you ever earned in every job you ever had, you could not give enough to deserve acceptance with God,
If every word you ever spoke was uttered with the purest of conscientious motivations, you would never be able to speak your way into reconciliation with God,
If you gave yourself to an unbroken, moment-by-moment life of ministry, you could never minister enough to achieve God’s favour.”
Sin is too big, God’s bar is too high for us to think that we might be able to earn His righteousness by the greatest of our deeds.
The faster we grasp this Grace, the easier this journey becomes. God isn’t looking out for your performance.
Christ said ‘It is finished’.
