Last week, I shared with you from God’s Word His view of us and our sinful habits. God is very clear that we are responsible for own deeds. Deeds meaning every word, action, and thought. Matthew 12:36 says that we will give an account for every idle word that we speak. 2 Corinthians 5:10 says that each of us will stand before the judgment seat for the good and the bad that we do. There is no escape to this fact. We are responsible for ourselves. I will not be held responsible for your deed just as you will not be held responsible for my deeds. I will answer for myself. You will answer for yourself. I do believe that a true follower of Christ desires to stand before the Lord that day and hear the words “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

However, there is one big hurdle that often stands in our way of doing good. It is our sinful nature. And, if we were to try to do things on our own, we would have NO HOPE of ever hearing those words spoken by Christ. Yet, the amazing thing is that there is HOPE!
