Trying Or Trusting

May 6, 2021

If you hope to go to heaven when you die, you are basing that hope on one of two things: trying or trusting. You may be trying to be a good person or trying to practice a religion.  Neither of those things will get you into heaven because it’s your sin that separates you from God and keeps you from entering His presence.  No amount of trying hard to do good and right things will remove that sin and replace it with righteousness.  The Christian faith is not about trusting in our own good works or even trusting that Jesus died for us plus our good works; it is about trusting that Jesus lived and died for us.  Jesus + Nothing = Everything. We pin our hopes on this:  He exchanged His perfect life for our imperfect ones.
