on The Great Exchange

“God’s grace – that is, God’s blessings in Christ toward helpless sinners who deserve only his curse – is the only reason Christ tasted death for us. Nothing we could do could cause or compel God to love us enough to send his Son to die for us…

All we can “do” is fall on our faces, bankrupt before him, and receive grace from his almighty, holy, and loving hand while we acknowledge that none of this would be happening were it not for the historical fact that Jesus, “because of the suffering of death” (Heb. 2:9), tasted the full bitterness of the death we deserved.” (p. 219) Jerry Bridges – The Great Exchange

I so often have well meaning friends try and point to me to something other than the reality that all we bring to God is our sin they say  that God won’t be so made at our sin; its only natural, I’m really a good person.

I on the other hand agree with Bridges.  it is only by God’s Grace through Jesus’ offering that Additionally, In light of eternity I urge you if you don’t know God or know about him but don’t want him to come to him. This life is so small.  It is a small 70 year slice and then with him forever or not. If you die outside of Christ you  will not stop being. You will not come back as something else.  You will stand before God with out any mercy in sight.  Repent and turn to him to do the one thing you can not.
