May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through...The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it. 1 THESSALONIANS 5:23-24

How good is "good enough" for God? Can you do enough in a day to make yourself acceptable to Him? There are days where you might say, yes, I can. If you are willing to drop the public perception of goodness that we all have crafted, you'll admit that you can't even live up to your own standards of goodness, let alone God's standards. We all spend a great deal of effort (to varying degrees) trying to achieve happiness and be good at the same time. It's an exhausting and exasperating pursuit.

But please listen closely...to the good news of the Bible, of the Gospel (which literally means good news). Jesus was more than good enough for us! At the cross He made the great exchange, giving His perfect obedience and goodness for our sin and guilt. He payed the price...and with that, He exclaimed "it is finished." There is nothing more to be done. Ever.

Have you have shifted your faith from your own efforts to the perfect, complete work of Jesus Christ? God Himself has promised to make you good enough if you have. The word of Jesus Christ is indeed the best and final Word for us.

"I will bless them and the places surrounding My hill. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing." (EZEKIEL 34:26)

Insight: Have you received this blessing? In our lifetime, if we fail to make a conscious decision to choose Jesus Christ, we choose Satan by default.

Dear Lord, The more I read these devotions and the longer I "put it off" to receive Your Son, Jesus Christ as my Savior, the "harder" my heart becomes. I may think I am alright with You, but am I really? Please help me to take this important decision seriously. For He says, “In the time of My favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Cor. 6:2. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
