Is anyone really ‘okay’?
January 23, 2013
“None is righteous, no, not one;
no one understands;
no one seeks for God.”
Perhaps you’ve seen or heard the illustration of people trying to get to heaven as trying to leap over an ocean. The illustration goes that some may jump further than others, but the point is clear that no one can jump across the ocean. And in the same way, while some may live better lives than others, the point is that no one can live a life holy enough to get to heaven.
Now, I want you to know that I believe all of that is true. Not one person is good enough to go to heaven. And even those who seem to live better lives than others still fall short, by far.
But do you know what I’ve noticed in life? It’s that most people don’t even try to jump to attain salvation. Oh, there may be a few religious people who try to prove themselves to God, but very few people today even bother to try to jump to get to God because most people today assume they’re already okay.
However, the reality is that not one person apart from Christ is okay. Every single individual has sinned and has fallen short of God’s holy standard. No one is okay, but God has given them a way to be made okay with Him.
So, don’t let the prevailing attitude of “I’m okay, you’re okay” keep you from sharing God’s truth. It’s only through Christ that anyone can come to God, so share that with others each day!
NO ONE CAN COME TO GOD APART FROM JESUS CHRIST. SO LIVE YOUR LIFE TO TELL THE WORLD THAT JESUS HAS MADE A WAY BACK TO GOD!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
