Not so different

2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

This morning this hit me!

Quite often I put myself down for my faults and can be way hard on myself. It is true that I need to repent and bring it to the altar, no doubt about that, but I am not so unique. This passage reminds me that ALL of man kind fails and this is the exact reason that Jesus was sent to save us from ourselves.

I am filthy and I need my Savior desperately. I fail constantly. I will never be worthy of His love and grace.

Today I will rest in the knowledge that God loves me anyway. He loves us all so much that He sent His only Son so that we might be saved. It is not just little ‘ol me that struggles moment to moment, it is not just me that drops the ball, we all do and God has know it since the beginning of time and He has made a way for us to be with Him once again. Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the light!

Praise God!
