If we were actually capable of being enough, God wouldn’t have had to go so far to reach us.

Flawless people have no need of grace or mercy.

My track record shows that I am far from perfect. I regularly have to ask for forgiveness. I regularly find myself hoping for mercy.

If you think about your life like school, imagine that you’re doing a group project with Jesus. You do “C” work and he does “A+” work. Your grade improves because he exceeded the standard. Someone else went the extra mile and saved your grade when your personal efforts didn’t get you the desired result.
