Recognizing our need

Nehemiah 9:33  Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly.

The hardest part of life is admitting our weakness or need. Most want to be right with God but do not want to think of themselves as failing God in any way. We want to feel good about ourselves.

The Bible truth would be that you can’t feel good about yourself without help. We have sinned. We have messed up. We need to humble ourselves and realize that before God we have failed.

We admit that He is right and that we are wrong. We acknowledge that we deserve punishment. We are grateful that He would forgive us and give us new life.

We need to stop the blaming and comparing games we play. We look at others and think that we are doing pretty good. We compare ourselves to those that are doing worse than we are. We change the measuring system from God to others.

Salvation is yours when you recognize your need of Jesus and turn from yourself to Him. Will, you quit thinking so highly of yourself and admit you need outside help. Will you trust Jesus Christ to save you by what He did on the cross of Calvary.
