Clean and Close to God

Clean and Close to God March 9, 2015

’Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.’ (Col. 3:2-3)

Too often, we Christians presume that we’re ‘sinners’ at the core just like everyone else. In doing so, we ignore one of the greatest aspects of the cross—the killing off of our old self. When we take on the ‘I’m a dirty worm’ theology and then seek to ‘be like Jesus,’ we’ll find it to be a losing effort. Christianity then becomes an exercise in futility and falsehood. We’re essentially trying to act like someone that we don’t believe we are. It then becomes religion.

We died. We’ve been raised and seated. And we’re clean and close to God. What more can we ask for?”
