Bad Desicisons…

dsc006681I saw this car at a friend’s apartment this weekend. I’m not certain what the cause of this parking arrangment was but no doubt, it was a mistake. Whatever the cause, this car had gone too far while parking and ended up with the front wheels off the edge of the parking lot dangling over the grass below. This car was stuck…there was no way they could remedy this situation on their own.

That very much reminds me of our situation as humans. We make some pretty bad decisions and mistakes and they leave us in a situation that we cannot fix on our own.

The blunt truth is that if we have sinned even once…we have made one mistake too many to meet Gods standard and to be deserving of an eternity in heaven. (Rom 3:23 thats the bad news) But luckily there is hope!

That hope can be found in Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, or how many mistakes or bad decisions you’ve made. God loved you and made a way for you to spend eternity in heaven with Him before you even had a chance to do anything to try to deserve it.

Mistakes happen, and God’s love continues to remedy them.
