“Jesus did not come to make bad people good, but to bring dead people alive.” Pastor J.P. Miller, Solid Rock at Market Common
Being a good girl for decades deadened my soul. I bragged that I didn’t smoke, drink, or have sex before marriage. I used to not cuss either until being good got the best of me.
My being good had little to do with God and everything to do with fear. I was afraid not to be good.
Being good ceased being a goal when one thing after another proved how little it mattered. I never could be good enough to get better. It was like going nowhere on a hamster wheel.
I wasn’t sure what to put in good’s place until yesterday’s sermon. It’s being alive and living in a relationship with Jesus.
What’s your choice?
