Pada hari ini, Daily Devotional dari David McGee, Calvary Chappel, mengungkapkan hal yang luar biasa.
Preacher yang satu ini selalu menulis dengan singkat, efektif dan mengena ke akar-akarnya.
Mari saya bagikan, “To Do”,
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”
What do you have to do in order to be righteous with God?
Do you have to die a martyr’s death before God will allow you into paradise? No.
Do your good deeds need to outweigh your bad deeds for God to allow you into heaven? No.
Do you have to be at peace with nature when you die, so that God will absorb you into heaven? No.
What if you have done enough works, will God then allow you into heaven? No.
Man pridefully wants to play a part in his salvation. We invent hurdles to jump, thinking we can earn God’s approval.
I don’t want what I’ve earned because according to Romans 6:23 I’ve earned death. I need God’s grace.
2 Corinthians 5:21 “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” NLT
Every world religion is based on what you ‘have to do’ to convince God you deserve to go to heaven… that is, except one – Biblical Christianity. You see, the Bible tells us that God has already done everything for you. Your part is simply to accept Jesus’ gift to you. He did the work, dying on the cross for your sins. Friend, you don’t have to reach for God because He’s already reaching out for you. Please don’t reject Him.
