When we were born, our lives were about receiving what we needed to live. We had to eat, to be clothed, to sleep and to be cared for. As we got older, we became more independent or so we thought. We went about our lives dressing ourselves, eaten what we wanted, and doing what we thought we should do. All the time believing that we were powerful and independent. We would live forever. There is nothing wrong with self-esteem. We should believe that we have learned enough to live in this world. But the idea that we are invincible or that we don’t need other people is a lie. A very craftily constructed lie that will kill you. We were designed to be connected to other people and would need that interaction to survive. It is a rude awaking for most people that they need someone greater than themselves to survive this world. God put that need in us so we would find Him. The goodness of God leads us to salvation. No one can find that salvation on their own. God has to bring us to the point of accepting His salvation. How far do you have to fall before you will accept God’s invitation to life?
