“May the Mind of Christ, My Savior” 333
Come be refreshed in your spirit and in your relationship. Once when a man mentioned at work that he was going to a couples retreat, his co-worker confided, “I didn’t know you were having trouble in your marriage!” He responded, “I’m not, but going to these couples retreats are part of what keeps me out of trouble!”. Whatever your motivation, you and your spouse will be drawn closer to God and to each other during these days of refreshment.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Some people are better than others, but nobody is perfect. Nobody, that is, except Jesus. He lived a perfect life, never did anything wrong, and completely pleased God.
We might do some good things, even many good things. But none of us can say we’ve never done anything wrong. We all have done wrong. We have all sinned.
This verse teaches us that we all fall short of God’s expectation, his standard for us. Because we fall short, we need a Savior. Jesus, the only one to live a perfect life, took our place, our punishment, and offers us his place, his reward, if we will believe, put our trust, place our confidence, in him for our salvation. Will you do that today?
