Mound Visits, 11/5/18
We should all strive to develop strong character and follow the example of Christ to the best of our ability. Having said that, I have good news and bad news for you today. The bad news is that we will never be good enough to enter heaven. Billy Graham wasn’t. Mother Teresa wasn’t. Even the Apostle Paul wasn’t. The good news is this: Jesus has paid the penalty for all of our sins! Through faith in Him, we can have what we don’t deserve.
“For it is by grace you have been saved through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”
“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”
(2 Corinthians 9:15)
