The Divine Standard

By   •   March 7

Christ said there is a happiness in that acknowledgment of spiritual poverty which lets God come into our souls. Now, the Bible teaches that our souls have a disease. It causes all the troubles and difficulties in the world. It causes all the troubles, confusions, and disillusionments in your own life. The name of the disease is an ugly word. We don’t like to use it. It is “sin.” All of us have pride. We do not like to confess that we are wrong or that we have failed. But God says, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” We have failed to live up to the divine standard. We must confess our sin as the first step to happiness, peace, and contentment.

Prayer for the day

Pride kept me so long from acknowledging my need of You, Lord. Each day, help me to realize I am nothing without You.

    Unfortunately, we were all born sinners. However our Merciful, Heavenly Father provided a way to escape the penalty of sin , which is death. He gave his only son Jesus Christ who died a horrible death to pay the price and redeem mankind. I am eternally thankful Lord.
