Jesus Christ Our Standard

February 9, 2015

 

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” - Romans 3:23

A lot of people in churches today are trying to get into heaven by their own merits and by their own works and it cannot be done. This shows a failure to meet the divine standard. The divine standard is in the person of Jesus Christ, who is perfect, who is Holy, who is Righteous, and who has never sinned.

The truth is this, we have to be placed in Christ Jesus, and this happens at the cross. You cannot perform your way into this standard, you have to surrender and believe in the finished atoning work of Jesus Christ, who met the standard by what He did for you and with you on the cross.
