No és just el suficient

De tant en tant vaig a parlar amb algú que diu que vol arribar a ser un cristià, però semblen estar pensant que el temps no està del tot bé. Quan els pregunto per què, em diuen sobre tots els seus pecats, tots els seus defectes, i totes les coses en mal estat que han fet en el passat. Mai discuteixo amb ells sobre els seus pecats, però em empenta cap enrere sobre els seus suposats.

Estan assumint que el pecat d'alguna manera et desqualifica per venir a Crist, quan la veritat és exactament el. Com que és un pecador no ens impedeixi Crist; que és la raó per la qual el necessitem. Si esperem que ens fixem perfecta per abraçar el estarem esperant per sempre.

En una de les meves cites favorites, Charles Spurgeon ens insta a deixar de mirar a nosaltres mateixos, i per començar a buscar Jesús. Ell diu:

"The! Dius, "No em penedeixo prou." Bolcada a si mateix. "No crec que prou." Bolcada a si mateix. "Estic massa indigne." Això és mirar-se a si mateix. "No puc descobrir,'Diu un altre, 'Que no tinc cap justícia. "És absolutament correcte dir que vostè no té cap justícia; però és bastant dolent per buscar qualsevol. És, ‘Look unto me.’ God will have you turn your eye off yourself and look unto him.”

La justícia no és el que necessitem per arribar a Crist; que és el que obtenim quan ens acostem a Crist. A la creu, Jesús prengué el càstig que mereixem per les vides pecaminoses que hem viscut. I quan posem la nostra fe en Ell, vam rebre el premi de la vida perfecta Jesús va viure. ¿No és increïble?

És cert que no som prou justos, però la justícia que necessitem es troba en ell. No, no podem perdonar-nos a nosaltres mateixos, però el perdó que necessitem es troba en ell. No podem simplement començar a les nostres vides, però la nova vida que necessitem es troba en ell. Tot el que necessitem es troba en Crist! Llavors, què estàs esperant? Mira a Ell ara.

    This could not be more true. Jesus died so the lost could be found. Not for the found to be perfect. No one is but him!

    I couldn’t agree more. This is a problem people have when they first get to know Christ, but I tell them of the perfect example for this: Paul. A man who was doing one of the worst things on this earth, and he turned into one of the greatest disciples ever. This should show you how powerful God is, and that you don’t need to be perfect to be a Chrsitian.

    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Cor 5:21

    I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he became Man so that he could receive our sins, sickness, diseases, sorrows, weaknesses and pain by faith. As a spirit of God, he could not have taken this curse upon himself because he was sinless. God poured out his wrath upon him when he had forsaken him at the cross. He took it all and died and went to hell for us! This is the LOVE of God! He paid our debt! And by his faith, he was raised up! THEREFORE, because He delivered me from the curse, because God so loved me, I declare that I AM the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD! No devil in hell will ever confuse me and tell me that I’m not good enough. No way! God SO LOVED THE WORLD that he GAVE his ONLY begotten SON, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH, but have EVERLASTING LIFE!
