I like the way one pastor put it years ago (1986) when he became overwhelmed with all the "ideals" he was collecting from church growth seminars and books. He said, "Quite frankly, I'm sick to death of ideals. I have so many ideals and I've been so frustrated by them, I really don't care for any more. What I'm looking for is a savior -- not someone who will just tell me what I ought to be, but someone who will forgive me for what I am, and then with his very love will enable me to be more than I ever believed I could be."

My friends, that's exactly what Jesus does for us when we acknowledge our sinfulness before Him. His love enables us to be more than we ever believed we could be to His honor and glory!

(From a sermon by C. Philip Green, A Good Fight, 5/27/2010)
