Du er ikke rettferdig nok

Nå og da vil jeg snakke med noen som sier at de ønsker å bli en kristen, men de synes å tro at tiden ikke er helt riktig. Når jeg spør dem hvorfor, de forteller meg om alle sine synder, alle sine mangler, og alle søl opp ting de har gjort i det siste. Jeg har aldri krangle med dem om deres synder, men jeg skyver på sine forutsetninger.

De antar at synd liksom diskvalifiserer deg fra å komme til Kristus, når det motsatte er sant. Å være en synder ikke holde oss fra Kristus; det er grunnen til at vi trenger Ham. Hvis vi venter til vi ser perfekt å omfavne Ham vi skal vente for alltid.

I en av mine favoritt sitater, Charles Spurgeon oppfordrer oss til å slutte å se på oss selv, og for å begynne å se til Jesus. Han sier:

"The! Du sier, Jeg ikke angrer nok. "Det ser for deg selv. «Jeg tror ikke nok." Det ser for deg selv. Jeg er også uverdig. "Det ser for deg selv. "Jeg kan ikke oppdage,Sier en annen, "At jeg har noen rettferdighet.» Det er helt riktig å si at du ikke har noen rettferdighet; men det er helt feil å se etter eventuelle. Det er, ‘Look unto me.’ God will have you turn your eye off yourself and look unto him.”

Rettferdighet er ikke det vi trenger for å komme til Kristus; det er hva vi får når vi kommer til Kristus. På korset, Jesus tok straffen som vi fortjener for de syndige liv vi har levd. Og når vi setter vår tro på ham, vi får belønning for det perfekte livet Jesus levde. Er ikke det fantastisk?

Det er sant at vi ikke er rettferdig nok, men den rettferdighet vi trenger er funnet i Ham. Nei, vi kan ikke tilgi oss selv, men den tilgivelse vi trenger er funnet i Ham. Vi kan ikke bare begynne våre liv, men det nye livet vi trenger er funnet i Ham. Alt vi trenger er funnet i Kristus! Så hva venter du på? Se til Ham nå.

    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!
