The more I read the Bible and the older I get the more I see the holiness and the high standard of God and with that the more I see my inadequacy to come to Him on my own.
My life has been up and down. A life of "i wills" and " i don'ts". But God is so loving and merciful that He gave us a way, a way to Him and a way of escape from our sins and inadequacies. This way is through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is our New Testament , our new covenant with God.
Before we met Jesus , our ways seem to be wide, it seems we can conquer the world on our own, until reality sets in , till our sins drag us down.And then through the mercies of God, He gave us Jesus. And then we came to Jesus, the road seems easy and hard as God helps us along the way.
Many times self tries to take in charge and many times self has to be taught that self only leads to failure and the more we rely on Jesus the more we see results.
May we keep looking on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
