Not Good Enough

For many years I entered my drawings in a local fair. I thought that these pictures were good. Sometimes I got 1st prize ribbons for my drawings. But I never won a large grand prize ribbon. Why? Because my drawings were not good enough. My drawings were good, but not good enough for a grand prize.
No matter how hard we try, we can never be good enough to earn salvation. We can never be holy like God. We all sin and fail. But there is good news for us! Verse 28b of our Bible Reading says, ?…a person is made right with God through faith, not through the things he has done to follow the law.?
We can never be made right by the things we do. But we can be made right by our faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins. That is the only way we can have a right relationship with God.
Praise God today for His plan of salvation.
