We Love THE Good News!

Abraham doubted God's promise of having a son by following his wife's request to sleep with her maid servant......Good News.......God used him to become the Father of many nations.
Noah's decision to consume enough wine to become drunk after getting off the boat was foreknown by God.......Good News.......
God used him to replenish the Earth.
David, a man after God's own heart, committed adultery..........Good News.........
God used him and chose him to be one of the most influential kings to ever reign.
Does this give excuse to sin? Absolutely not. But.......Good News.........Jesus wasnt sent to redeem the perfect......but He came to save the wreched, worthless, incapable souls as our own!
And in the midst of our filth, He still desires to use us.
So get rid of any self-righteous thinking of having the capability to be "good" enough to be used by God.....Relax
Because He wants to do more in you more than you want to do for Him.
Hes much better at glorifying Himself through us than we are by trying to glorify Him in striving to "be good." Its His righteousness we're striving for.......not our own.
