SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/23/15- “We All Fall Woefully Short And Are Excruciatingly Inadequate!” (Romans 3:23-24)
Premise Question: Is there any amount of effort or exercise, that we could make or do, on our own behalf, that would be successful in acquiring or producing the desired result of redemption for our soul; or would it all just be an exercise in futility?
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. (Romans 3:23-24 NLT)
No one can escape the demand and righteous requirement of what is owed. As a direct result of humankind’s sin, everyone is woefully inadequate to even begin to have the ability of measuring up to the excellence and pure light of the holiness and righteousness of Papa God. Yet, all of us are declared innocent, guiltless, totally absolved of all of our sin, being completely justified, as if we had never entered into sin. This was provided and freely given to us, through and by His wonderful grace, although, this grace was not free, in the sense that it cost nothing, for it cost Papa God, The Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, everything, as they paid the ultimate price for our certain redemption. His atonement completely covered and satisfied the full amount owed for our redemption and total deliverance from sin and death; all of this came through Jesus Christ, The One True Sovereign LORD God Almighty and Savior of humankind! (Romans 3:23-24 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Without the intervention and gracious help of The LORD, we all fall woefully short, as we are completely ill equipped and excruciatingly inadequate to effect the necessary transformative change that must take place in our individual lives, in order to experience a new and redemptive life of eternal joy and peace forevermore. Otherwise, any other course of action or path we choose to take in life, is utterly doomed from the start, and therefore, would be pointless, useless, inconsequential and absurd, as it would be completely ineffective, worthless, without merit or reward, and would for certain be an abject exercise in futility. Let us choose the only way and path that leads to righteousness, peace and joy and an eternal escape from death and damnation, freeing us from the sure penalty of death and destruction, that freely grants us eternal life. Choose life! Choose Christ! Blessings…
