Good Person Test

Are you a good person? If you answer yes to that question, you are not alone. Most people think they pass the test of a good person and God will open the gates of Glory and let them pass through. Let’s take the test now to see how you do…

1. Ever told a lie? (Even a little white one. Maybe even one to keep from hurting someone else?)

2. Ever stolen something? (A pen at a bank or a piece of candy)

3. Ever disobeyed your parents? (An attitude of disobedience counts here)

There are 10, count them TEN commandments. These were meant to show us what perfection is. These 10 commandments are the basis of what makes a “Good” person.

OK…How did you do? You may say that you have broken ONLY one. That is great to hear, but according to the Bible, if you have broker one, you are guilty of them all.

The Bible tells us clearly that there NO ONE Good. Romans 3:23 states that “…for all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” All. That includes you and me. All. That includes your mom, your dad, your pastor. All. This includes ALL of mankind.

This would be terrible news and we could say that a righteous God has declared that we are sinners on our way to Hell, but God made a way of escape.

In Romans 6:23, the Bible tells us that, “The wages of sin is death.” Stop there and we are in trouble. We have sinned and are on our way to HELL. Hell is described as a place of constant torment and never ending suffering. IF this were the end of the passage, we would say, we are in big trouble. But God provided a way out. Reading on in this same passage, the Bible says “BUT the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This is awesome news. Jesus Christ has given us the gift of eternal life through His death on the cross. But, you must believe and receive the gift to saved from your own sin.

Jesus died because a debt had to be paid. The debt that was owed, was that of sin. Your sin and my sin had to be paid for. There had to be a sacrifice for sin. The Bible tells us that without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. So, your blood or His blood will be used to pay the price. It is your choice.

You may ask, how do I accept the gift. I am so glad you asked. The Bible tells us in Romans 10:9, that “if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Think about this. you are being offered to have your sins forgiven. The work of Jesus at Calvary has covered your sins and the gift of Jesus Christ is being offered. Will you accept?

Remember, your blood or His? It is that simple.
