Everyday Truth Humor

A guy and his car are standing at the pearly gates. The car is covered with Christian bumper stickers. The guy is trying to talk his way into heaven but Peter won't budge. The guy says, “But look at my car!" Peter finally compromises and says, "OK, your car can come in..."  Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters.

Much of the time people don't realize what forgiveness truly means in their lives. They really believe the sin that separates them from God in the first place, is worth it. And sometimes they look at forgiveness as a license to keep on living in the flesh while expecting God to jump through hoops they’ve set up.  The Holy Spirit living in us will keep us from staying comfortable in our sin.  The Apostle Paul says in Romans 7:15, I sometimes fall and do what I don’t want but with Jesus I don’t have to stay down.  I’m human and imperfect, but the One that lives in me has conquered the desires of the flesh…everyday.
