Talon’s Point of the Day – April 16th, 2015 You Don’t Deserve Salvation…THANK GOD!

There is a growing view within the modern church that Jesus died for us because we are worth it. While this may sound somehow logical, after all he did chose to die for us, it is in my humble opinion terribly wrong, and likely born of the “God wants us rich and comfortable” message within the “Church” and the “I deserve whatever I want” cultural disease running rampant through our society.

The truth, as I read his Word, is that Jesus came and died for us specifically because we WEREN’T worthy of it. The God who declared light where it did not exist, and the Son who later walked in the holiness that only God can demand or live up to, desired to save a humanity that rejected the light and continues to despise holiness. Why do so? Not because we were in any way worthy of the murder of God in flesh on our behalf, but because perfect love always seeks to give that which the recipient does not deserve.

After all these years of following Christ I can look in my soul and honestly admit that I simply, and still, do not deserve this gift. THAT is why my Savior is worthy of my worship, and why I look forward to being ETERNALLY grateful.
