Never Good Enough

by Berni Dymet

Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the lost.

Some people wander through life, with this nagging sense of never, ever being good enough.  What they need, desperately, is to experience the amazing love of God through Christ Jesus His Son. 

God?! Oh no!  I'm not good enough.

No we're not!  In fact, no one is, and that's the whole point!  That's what makes Jesus…..different.

We are exactly the ones He came to save.  Save?  From what.

From not being good enough. It took me ages to get my head around this - I'm not sure I'll ever fully grasp what He did on that Cross for you and for me.

But God is a Perfect God……and there's no way to be close to Him, unless somehow, the "not good enough" thing is washed away. 

See, the world'll tell us that we are good enough. But deep down in our hearts, when we look at God, we know we're not.  That's why Jesus died to pay for all that stuff with His life.  That's why He rose again. To bring us home to Dad.
