I have learned over the years that God’s solutions are always better! Today, we begin a series on His solutions and we’ll observe the wisdom of His answers. Have you tried to resolve or accomplish tasks, responsibilities or roles in your own way or the world’s way, and then tried God’s way? God’s solutions are always for your benefit, and God’s methods are better than the world’s resolutions. They just take time.
But first, it’s essential that we recognize what the world says about morality and also what many religions say about morality. Both say, “If you follow these rules and regulations properly, we’ll let you into our community.” And, “If you conform exceptionally well, we’ll give you a seat at the table.” But Christianity, in its correct form, doesn’t say that. The God solution says the opposite: “Trust in Jesus just as you are: sinner, broken, messed up, addicted, full of fears and insecurities. Just come to God’s house, sit at the table, and we’ll show you what to do!”
Friend, trust that God loves you just as you are, not as you should be. You can build your whole life in response to that good news. The Gospel says, “Because Christ laid down His life for me, I’m justified.” One definition of justified is, “just as if I had never committed any wrongdoing.” The good news is that God is for you. He invites you to come in. I want to ask you today, if you haven’t already, to make a decision to commit your life to Christ. Ask Christ to enter your heart, and your life will never be the same.
