“Really! There’s no such thing as self-rescue, pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. The cost of rescue is beyond our means, and even then it doesn’t guarantee Life forever, or insurance against the Black Hole.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭49:7-9 MSGPerhaps you’ve proudly said, “I pulled myself up by my bootstraps.”  Sure, there are plenty of trials in life a person can power through apart from God, but no matter how many times you’ve picked yourself up you can’t dust off the sin that separates you from God. You can’t make enough money, volunteer enough hours, or earn enough trophies to buy a seat sitting at the right hand of a Holy and righteous God. That was purchased long ago with the blood of Jesus Christ who took on all the sin of the world— past, present and future, to give each of us the gift of real life. Have you fully accepted that gift? Unwrapped it and taken hold of that treasure?
