NO matter what we try to do to be a good person or to earn salvation we cant.
Isaiah 64:6 We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Ephesians 2:8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
The wonderful thing about Christ is that He saved us because of His love. We don’t deserve it, but we desperately need it. All we have to do is ask.
But you still cant polish a turd…If we are so bad and filthy then what will saving us do?
When we allow Christ to be the LORD of our lives He does’t just clean us up. He makes us new!
2 Corinthians 5:17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
He takes that filthy mess we call a life and creates something beautiful.
Don’t be a polished turn. Let God make you something beautiful.
