What an awesome thought that we share the same status as these biblical Hall of Famers. Our human nature is to place our Christian leaders on pedestals; I am grateful to Spurgeon for his reminders that we share equal standing in the eyes of God. There has not been a man who has walked on this earth (save Christ) that has deserved the place reserved for them in eternity. We are so quick to rate sin on our self constructed human scale and in doing so are quick to label some sins as acceptable and others as unforgivable. God does not have a sin scale…all sin is sin and capable of condemning us to an eternity of suffering out of God’s presence. Let’s check our hearts today for even a particle of self righteousness for if it is there it must be wiped away and placed at the foot of the cross.
John 15:15 – I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
