The Big Lie

wws gc 15 quoteOn one side there is ego, which is typically an undeserved lofty opinion of one’s self, and on the other side of the proverbial coin is our tendency to deem ourselves unworthy. Both are lies.

We are not worthy of God’s unconditional love, and there is nothing we can do to change that fact. If we were able to make ourselves worthy of His love, He wouldn’t have had to send His Son to stand in our place.

The fact is, when we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are no longer visible to God. This is because He has placed Jesus in front of us, and Jesus forever will stand between us and God.

And so, not because we’ve earned it—not because of what we might say, think, or do—we are worthy, because when God looks at us, all He sees is His awesome Son.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
