Let me say this to you about that. You won’t read this on your most frequently visited websites.
I assume you know you are not holy. Like, duh! Most of us are at least that much “self-aware”, no? But what do you know about God, the most holy in the universe?
Our Holy Holy Holy God was (and is) so opposed to anything not holy – that He volunteered to die in order to be able to save us all – you and me. THAT is truly the biggest Wonder of the Universe. God came to earth as a man, Jesus!
His holy system of justice demanded holy justice. So He Himself went to the cross – because no other was holy. He was our holy substitute, hanging in our place on a wicked, wicked cross beside two wicked criminals. That was no ordinary death He died. He planned it, made it happen, and actually did it Himself – with a purpose: to save us from His Holy Holy Justice.
Fear this: If you enter 1 into His Kingdom Courts of Justice – without the covering of His death on that cross, you will be damned for all eternity. God is a damning God. But be happy in this: if you forsake your own wimpy way 2 – He will, by His Almighty power… declare you free, indeed.
If we come to Him and sincerely admit, “O God I am a sinner…” — He then:
- (and you know?… we all will, eventually)
- …”wimpy” as in – far, far from God’s powerful way….
