We must be holy because God calls us to be holy and perfect, just like Him (Leviticus 19:1-2; Matthew 5: 48).
We are "born in sin and shapen in iniquity" Ps.51.5. and there is no hope for us, for "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God". Rom.3.23. There are none righteous, No Not One. Rom.3.10.
So what can we do?
"Salvation is of the Lord" Jo.2.9. Ps.27.1. John Baptist cried out "Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world".
Jn.3.16. You know it. Our trust is in the shedding of his blood for us. Heb.9.22.
Ex.12,13. The passover was given by God. The spotless lamb in those verses are type of Jesus.
"My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus Name.
On Christ the solid rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand.
In Christ alone our Hope is found.
Be blessed, and happy in the Salvation Jesuis has brought to you.
He cried as He died "It is finished" Salvations work is done for you and I. Hallelujah.
Jesus said "I am the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE"......Without the WAY there is no GOING, without the TRUTH there is no KNOWING without the LIFE there is no LIVING....Thats what Jesus said.
