If we realized that we are forgiven
through the Christ who did die for all,
we would begin to see our need for Him…
Are we still condemned since “the fall“?
I have a problem with those
who say we must obey
in order to be redeemed;
in order to be able to say
that we are HOLY in the eye of God.
As if we are worthy to claim
that our works somehow add to this redemption.
As if we are one in the same.
Why would God send His only Son
to DIE for every sin
that we would EVER commit,
if we were able to be enough for Him?
If we were able to be loving enough,
or if our works could be of gain,
then His death was not needed!
Then His death was certainly in vain!
Is this what you believe,
that His death was not enough?
I suppose that you are more than I, then…
I guess you are a diamond in the rough.
Claiming that my God did not do it right
when He died for everything we lack
is a shameful way to view His way
of bringing us back
to a perfect standing before a perfect God
who never desired for us to eat
of the fruit that was forbidden,
back when we were complete.
He desires for us to serve in reverence
and to praise Him for the way
through Christ who died for all, only once,
so we’ll look forward to the day
when we will be complete again.
In His heaven, we can rest.
In Christ, we are allowed to find forgiveness
to all this earthly mess.
