Not Good Enough

He wasn't good enough. 
He'd never been and never would be good enough.
His condition prevented his access.
But one day, one Name made all the difference.

“In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” . . . He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.

Acts 3:6, 8 NIV
I'm not good enough. 
I've never been and never will be good enough. My condition prevented my access.
But one day, one Name made all the difference.

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.

Ephesians 3:12 NLT
None of us is good enough. 
We have never been and never will be good enough.
Our efforts are useless and our attempts fall far short of perfection.
We are unacceptable and denied entrance to the throne room.
Until the day we hear the one Name that makes all the difference.

In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Ephesians 3:12 NIV

If you have not yet been changed by the Name and person of Jesus Christ, consider this your invitation to discover Who he is. You are deeply loved, friend!
