"I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH YET"
Have you ever frantically straightened your living
room just before company came over? Or maybe asked someone
not to come over just now because you felt your home was
Some folks have that same feeling about receiving
Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. They don't want to "join
the church" or "go down front" yet--different things from
being BORN AGAIN--because they want to clean up their messy
lives, at least a little bit, first.
If you feel this way, QUIT HOLDING OFF. Here's why:
NO ONE is able to become "good enough." That was the
reason the sinless Messiah died on the cross as the
Sin-bearing Lamb, so that every sinner who trusts in Him
can be forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life.
Jesus Christ is the ONLY ONE who was ever "good enough."
He offers His full and free salvation ONLY to people who
are NOT "good enough."
Doctor Luke records, "And Jesus answered and said to
them, `Those who are well do not need a physician, but
those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.'" (Luke 5:31-32 NKJ)
If you think you are "good enough" for God on your
own, then we don't have any good news for you at all. If
you think you're already "righteous", you might even be
getting very angry right about now.
But if you realize that you are a sinner, we call on
you to turn in repentance and faith to our Great Physician.
Jesus Christ is "good for what ails you." Read more about
Him in the New Testament.
But don't wait. Trust Him NOW.
