I’m not that bad. A lot of people are worse.

Posted on 11/1/2017 by Greg Yoder

How many times have we heard this from our kids, especially our teens? And, they’re probably right. If we look at their behavior from the world’s perspective, they’re NOT that bad. Maybe they’re not doing drugs, sleeping around, or shoplifting. But the reality is the Bible doesn’t say to compare ourselves with the world—but to Jesus. How do we measure up to Him? The hard part is, how do we convince our unsaved kids they are THAT bad? The “that bad” is bad enough to need a Savior, Jesus. Romans is pretty clear: “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” But the good news? We’re justified by His grace alone—not works or not being “that bad.” Read Romans 3 today.

Suggested Reading: Romans 3
