Good Morning November 16

The esteem and honor given to a cure is directly related to the seriousness of the disease. If a scientist were to find a cure for hangnails, so that no one would ever get another hangnail, that would be a rather ho-hum event. If someone where to find a complete cure for all cancer, he would be lauded world wide and given the Nobel prize. The problem with the acceptance of Jesus is that too many don’t see the seriousness of the disease of sin. All people are infected with the disease of sin. We are corrupt to the core and separated from God. The only remedy is the atoning sacrifice of Christ. The Apostle John wrote, “He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for those of the whole world.” (I J.2:2) For those who see the seriousness of sin in their own life, Jesus is everything, and we worship Him for the wonder of His grace that has cleansed us and made us righteous in the sight of our God.
