Thank the Lord that not one of us will get to Heaven because of how good we are! I know that I wouldn’t make it if that were the case. No one would. One little sin–either by thought, word, or action–would be more than enough to make every person unworthy of being in the holy presence of God.
How special it is that God does know you–right down to your private thoughts–and still loves you. In fact, He loves you so much that He sent His one and only Son to die in payment for your sins because He knew that you couldn’t do it on your own. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 6:23).
