Romans 9:31-32 “But the people of Israel, who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law never succeeded. Why not? Because they were trying to get right by keeping the law instead of by trusting in Him.”
Many people have the good intention of keeping the 10 Commandments, doing religious activities, doing good works in their effort of being in right standing with God.
But in Romans 3:20 it says… “The law simply shows us how sinful we are.” No matter how hard we try we’ll never make it to God’s standard. It’s like trying to jump over a 500 meter chasm to get to the other side.
You WILL fall! That’s why He sent His Son to make a way for us. Now, it’s like you wear a harness attached to a crane that will lift you and take you to the other side. It’s not your ability to get there, it’s something else… Or Someone else.
When you lose your temper, ask Him for help. When you need guidance, ask Him. When facing a temptation, ask Him. When you struggle to trust Him, ask Him. Whatever help you need, ask Him. Let His ability be the one to work in you to accomplish what needs to be done.
That’s why He is called Savior. He saves. Let Him change you. Ask Him to… He wants to. A whole new world will open for you!
