Topping God

The good news, the great stuff about you and God is this: “He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)

If you believe that by bringing your sins before God you’ll get Him to pay great attention to them, think again. He already did. And He’s pretty satisfied and rather happy with what He has done about sin. You can’t top it.

If you believe that behaving perfectly—with really great commitment—will earn favor with God that would otherwise be threatened, think again. He has given full favor already in Christ. Attaining to some measure of “sold out-ishness for God” won’t add anything to the everything He’s already given. Jesus did it all, and He’s all you need. You can’t top it.

You’ve got Him? You’ve got everything. You don’t need to look anywhere else.

Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
