“If you want to be good enough then you need to be perfect. If you want to be perfect then you need to follow Jesus.” @pastorjasondoran
A week ago my family and I found ourselves in Lexington, KY and among the UPS trucks and Amazon fulfillment centers we found @themotionchurch ! Ok, I know there are some 400,000 Christian churches in the U.S. and it’s not really difficult to find one but still, they had a cool looking building so I wanted to check it out.
I watched the sermon “Raise the Standard” from their March Madness series. I have a military background so I’m fully aware of what it means to strive and meet (and fall short) an unchanging standard. The message from this sermon was just that – the standard for sin is death and we can’t lower the standard to have it meet us down here. We need Jesus – there is no doing this on our own. I find that freeing. Like “you mean I can have help? I don’t need to do everything myself??”
No I don’t. The hard part was already done. The same for all of us! 🙌 God bless you!
