Often when some of us first start hearing the Gospel, or they start reading God’s Word, we say, “I don’t like it, it is too hard to accept. I just don’t understand.”  We want to be better to keep our resolutions for the New Year. We want a better self, we see ourselves as good people in our own minds. But we struggle. We discover we can’t do this on our own.  We are created to seek God, the closer we get to Him the more He will draw near to us. But here’s the challenge: He is God and like it or not He is a God of Judgment just as much as a God of Love. He gives us a choice. Obedience is part of believing. And it is hard. What a patient God we have! When we follow Him, He will lead the way.

For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are…We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are…For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.  Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.

Romans 3:20-24
