The Scales of Good and Bad…

Read: Matthew 8: Mark 2
Marked: Mark 2:5, When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

Jesus has the power and authority to forgive sins. But many reject the idea that they are sinners. Yet, Romans 3:23 says that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

If asked what one must do for God to allow them into heaven many reply with, “Good works”. But our own righteousness can’t undo a lifetime of sin. There are no cosmic scales weighing the balance of our good and bad.

Only Jesus has the power to do that because only Jesus lives a sinless life and He has become for us the atonement for sin. And for that I am eternally grateful.
