God takes our salvation and relationship with Him seriously. We know that God loves us because He sent His Son to live and die for us. We miss God’s goal for our lives (aka sin) big time. We need Jesus.
Jesus set the standard for us. Check out Matthew 5 – 7 for a glimpse of how high the bar is set. It is traditionally called the Sermon on the Mount. I see it as the Jesus Manifesto for a radical new way of living.
It is only through Jesus and His redemption that we can live a holy and sanctified life.
“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’ ” ~Billy Graham
