Are you a good person? posted by John Sorensen on Jul 14, 2020
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
Are you a good person? You know, most people would probably say they are pretty good. Not perfect all the time, but not so bad, either. But by what standard? The Bible actually gives us the standard. Jesus says in Matthew five verse forty eight, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Now, that creates a problem because the Bible also says ‘there is no one who does good. No not one.” So if our good isn’t good enough, how can we earn our way into Heaven? We can’t! Our best efforts could never get us close, but God, rich in mercy made a way for us! While we could never deserve it, Jesus came to earth and took our punishment upon Himself. Now all we have to do is accept God’s gift of grace! So, stop trying to work your way into Heaven. Instead, place your faith in the work that Jesus did for you on the cross. If you need to know more, visit Share Life dot Today.
