Made Right with God
by Max Lucado

How would you fill in this blank? A person is made right with God through_____.  Don’t let its brevity fool you. How you complete it is critical; it reflects the nature of your faith.

One might say a person is made right with God through... being good.  Giving sandwiches to the poor. Some say Christian conduct is the secret.  Perhaps suffering is the answer.  Sleep on dirt floors. Malaria. Poverty. Bare feet. The greater the pain, the greater the saint. No, no, no, another contends.  The way to be made right with God?  It’s doctrine. Air-tight theology which explains every mystery. Inspiration clarified.

Yet, how are we truly made right with God?  All the above are tried. All are demonstrated. But none are from God. Romans 3:28 says, “A person is made right with God through faith.” Through faith in God’s sacrifice on the cross.

It’s not what you do, it’s what He did.

From And the Angels Were Silent
