Recently, someone said to me, “The only good I have is because I’m a Christian.” What did the person mean? They were acknowledging that Christ is the “goodness” in them. Christ is more than “good,” however. He is what Hebrews 7:26 defines as undefiled. Whereas our human nature is defiled, Christ is the opposite. He is “holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted about the heavens.” Christ is a fitting high priest who saves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. We have a holy, innocent, UNDEFILED Savior to whom we can look with gratitude.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving us and saving us! We are grateful for You and love you.
