Perhaps you were at church on Sunday and heard this message: Jesus’ standard is perfection. The Law is good. The test is holy. But the great hope is realized in the Gospel news—that it’s Jesus who takes the test!
Sometimes it’s hard for us to believe that we would be given this amazing grace by our King. We feel unworthy. We have no claim on salvation on our own merit. Jesus has done all the work for us. He laid his life down for us, taking on our sin. We don’t earn salvation. God gives grace through faith in Jesus Christ because He wants us to have it, not because of anything we do. It truly is divine favor. And it is Amazing.
