The Encouragement of Easter

Do or Done
Which path to God do you chose?

The comparison game will not work here, i.e. 'I'm not as bad as my neighbor or the murderer or drug dealer.

In my heart I know the truth of Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and fallen short." I can never be good enough to get into heaven on my own strength.

The chasm that separates me from God is too wide. James 2:10, "whoever keeps the whole law, but stumbles at one point is guilty of breaking it all," stops me in my do-good tracks.

The good news is the new plan-the done deal. John 1:12 describes the details. " To all who believe in His name, alone, He gave the right to become the children of God."

I struggle to get my mind around this fact. No more working my way to heaven. The price was paid. The deal is sealed, signed and delivered.

Lord, please help me transfer my trust to the Done Plan.
Let my life be an offering of gratitude for the price you paid to accomplish it.
