In John 6:40 Jesus says, “For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”

But wait a minute, there is something within every person that prevents us from looking to Jesus. It is the belief that we’re really pretty good. We know we’re not perfect, but hey we’re not too bad. And the world teaches us we’re ok, I’m ok, you’re ok, we’re all ok. and if I’m ok what do I need to look to Jesus for? A well person doesn’t need a doctor.

See we’re all like Jim Henson of the Muppets. He didn’t feel perfect, but he thought he was alright, he just had a little cold. 12 days later he was dead, he had walking pneumonia. Walking pneumonia is a deceptive illness; it makes you think you’re ok when you might be dying of a fatal disease.

You and I are born with spiritual walking pneumonia; we think we’re ok, the reality is we have a fatal disease called sin and we will die from it one day.
