TEXT: Romans 5:8 - But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Are you good enough? There are lots of ways to take that question. Good enough for what? Good enough to make the team? Good enough to get the lead? Good enough to date her? With so many demands to live up to, it's easy to feel like a failure. There's no way you can earn the love and respect of every person you come into contact with. So stop trying! You can stop trying to meet the demand to prove yourself and please everyone. The opinions that others have of you are not nearly as important as what God thinks of you. It's His vote that matters, His love that is lasting, and His approval that determines your eternity. You don't have to earn His love, pass the test, or be the best. He chose you just the way you are. God tells us in Romans that while we were still lost in sin He choose us and sent Christ to die for us. There was nothing good in us to prompt Him to do it.
