When you think of someone as a radical, what do you mean? The dictionary defines radical as something basic or fundamental. It comes from the Latin word meaning "root." Would it be an overstatement to say that someone with a genuine faith in Jesus Christ must be a radical?
Genesis 17 verse 1, says “God came to Abraham and said, ‘I am Almighty God. Walk before Me and be blameless.’” Does that mean we need to live perfect lives? If so, it seems that perfection isn’t happening any time soon!
Romans 3:23 states, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” No matter how hard we try, we’ll never reach the standard of perfection. On our own, we’ll never pass the test. But there’s hope for those who are willing to accept God’s gift of grace!
Perfection. It’s the ultimate standard to get into heaven. And yet, no matter how good we are or how hard we work, we’ll never hit the mark. Find out why being good just isn’t good enough.
It’s only when we truly understand that we’re sinners . . . personally . . . without anyone else to blame . . . that we can stop hiding and come to God for mercy. It’s when we relinquish our weaknesses to God that true freedom can be found!
Haddon Robinson Shares From His Heart About Developing A Personal Relationship With Jesus Christ Part 16
The Bible says, “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” None of us are exempt from sin.
There’s a subtle temptation to live our spiritual lives for an audience of onlookers . . . rather than the “audience of One” . . . our heavenly Father. Saying the right thing at Bible study, having a prominent part in the Sunday service . . . it’s all good, but not the right focus.
