I’ve got good news and bad news for us: We Can’t Do It!
Yes, that is both good news and bad news. And, it isn’t very welcome news in our culture in the 21st century as Americans.
The song attached is by a local artist who captures this idea in a song about Nicodemus, a teacher of the Jewish law when he basically asked Jesus Christ: “how can I do it?” “how can I inherit eternal life?
That story is in John’s Gospel, the 4th book of the New Testament in the Holy Bible. The answer from Jesus entails the most basic, most profound info about humans relating to God – and vice-versa.
Here are some highlights:
God so loves people that He gave His only Son.
His Son (Jesus Christ) did not come to condemn people.
You can’t start over in human effort; You Can’t Do It!
You can start over in His power, He Can Do It!.
The power is gifted to you when you believe the above with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
Please listen to Michael’s song, carefully, several times!
