This is from Tim Challies, via his Instagram. He’s got a fantastic blog as well, with tons and tons of resources, especially if you’re looking for a good book!
This is such a good reminder of who we are. Sinners. Plain and simple. No one is good. Why? Because only God is good, and we are not God. To be God is to be ultimate, infinite, perfect. Humans are none of these things. “To err is human” is putting it lightly. “To be wretched is human” is slightly more accurate.
And yet! God calls those who would believe in Jesus for salvation to be, not just good, but Holy! Only through Jesus’ righteousness covering our sin is this possible.
Amen and Hallelujah!
Soli Deo Gloria!
