Matthew 9:13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

So many people are just too good to be saved. They do not need forgiveness or if they so it is so little. They are just good people. They have a good heart. They have never experienced sin or anything really bad. They don’t really need the kind of Saviour that others need. They are just too good.

Of course you know that is not true. You know that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. You know that there is none that are good or right for that matter.

But the issue is that some simply will not accept that. Much of Christianity is the idea that I am not that bad. That is exactly what will keep them from ever getting saved.

Jesus didn’t come to save those that were already good.

Do you or will you admit that you are completely undeserving of salvation? Will you admit that you do not deserve to go to Heaven?

If you will not then you cannot be saved! It is as simple as that. The facts are that you are not good enough but then you might just think too highly of yourself!
