We cannot offer anything but helplessness in this new life Jesus offers. It doesn’t matter what you drive, what you do, or who you know. It doesn't matter what moral achievements you’ve racked up, that you’ve been a nice person, that you did that one good thing that one time, or never hurt anyone, or didn’t mean to do all those things you did. The ground is level at the foot of the cross. It’s for people who discovered they’re helpless to make things right with God on their terms and are ready to receive the gift of grace that says, I love you for who you are, not what you’ve done. God sees past all that exterior stuff, the Bible says, and looks right into your heart. Jesus did not come to partially bless your old life, he came to bless you with a whole new kind of life.
