Not Good Enough

For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in the one point has become accountable for all of it.

James 2:10

Good people are good enough for the world’s standards, and even some religions. Being a good person alone just isn’t good enough by heaven’s standards. We need Jesus!

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:23-24

Workings of the Spirit

And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:27

This is a lovely verse that I just keep reading over and over. The Holy Spirit is a working person of God living within me, as a baptized follower of Christ. Wow.
