You know those people that have become Christians after a really rough life? A life fraught with many bad decisions and after they've reached the bottom of the pit, they found Jesus and turned their lives around? My testimony is nothing like that. I've always thought it would be kind of cool to have a more exciting testimony about what my life was before I met Christ but....I don't.
Sunday in church, the pastor pointed to the communion table and told us that we could bring all of our very best achievments to the table and offer them to God and they still wouldn't be good enough to get to Heaven.
High school was when I finally figured out that all my goody-goody good choice making, straight-A earning, not sleeping around self, figured out that I still wasn't good enough to get to Heaven on my own. Dang, I was trying hard to earn it!! I'm eternally grateful that someone finally pointed out to me that no matter how 'good' I was...I was never going to be good enough. I needed a Savior that would take away my sins, because I couldn't do it on my own. :)
Life is good.
