We All Fail God

Psalm 14:1-3
1 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good. 2 The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God. 3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.

I have got some bad news.  Everyone has failed God.  None of us act completely like God wants us to do.  Compared to the Holy standard of God, we do not even come close.  There is no who does good (Romans 3:23).  If your hope to get into heaven is that you are better than somebody that other person, then you have no hope.  God does not judge us based on a curve, at least one against other people.  His Holiness is the standard, so compared to that we do not even come close to measuring up.  We all deserve eternal punishment in Hell (Romans 6:23).  God will not lower His standard of perfection.  Nothing we can do can get us into heaven.  Our deeds are but filthy rags in His sight (Isaiah 64:6).

I have some good news.  God provided a way for us to meet H is standard.  When the time was right, He sent His One and Only Son to earth.  Born of a woman and of a God, Jesus was able to live a perfect life.  He is the only one, who has not failed God.  Jesus sacrificed His life, taking our sins upon Him and paid the penalty for those sins.  He defeated death and rose again.  Now God uses this sacrifice, this atonement and is willing to apply it to our lives.  You might ask, how do we obtain it?  Not with money, not with deeds, nothing we can offer on our own.  The only way we can obtain this free gift, is to come to Jesus by faith.  Believing that He is the only way (John 14:6)to God and confessing our sins, how we have failed God (Romans 10:9).  By doing this, God applies what Jesus did and His righteousness to our lives and when He looks at us He sees Jesus.  If you have not accepted Jesus as your savior, please make today the day you do.  We do not know when our end will come, so do not wait too long.  For those who reject this free gift from God, will go to Hell and I do not want that to be you.
