Even Our Best Is Not Good Enough
mingles even with our holy things, and our best repentance, faith,
prayer, and thanksgiving could not be received of God were it not for
the merit of the atoning sacrifice." Charles Spurgeon How our
hearts struggle's to believe this. If you bring to God your best
repentance God would not receive it by itself alone. He can only receive
it because of the merit of Christ's atoning sacrifice. Whatever you
bring to God is mixed with sin. Your best faith, your best prayer, and
your best thanksgiving would not make it past the ceiling of the room
you're in unless it was washed in the atoning sacrifice of Christ. Only
what Christ has done is acceptable to God. Come to God on the basis of
Christ's merit alone and leave all your religious goodness behind.
