I’m worthless. Now, I know what you’re saying, “No, Aaron, you’re not.” But, I mean this in the eternal sense, in the sense that there is no part of me that is worth Jesus dying on the cross. I think I forget that all the time.
If there is any little bit of me that is worth dying for, then (even if only a little bit) I earned it. Maybe I didn’t earn all of the grace God has given me, but I earned some of it.
But, when I earn it, it’s no longer grace. And the bible is pretty clear about what I’ve earned: “The wages of sin is death.”
Sometimes I think I just take His grace for granted. Forgive me Lord, for pretending your amazing gift to me is something that I could have earned.
