I’ve never understood religion that tied salvation to doing the right things, performing the right rituals, acting the right way.
For me, it’s been the reverse.
Because I’m a mess. I’d never make it under that sort of religious yoke.
As I grow in faith, I’ve become ever-more aware of my own depravity. I stand in daily need of a Savior. I needed Him once … and I need Him for always. Every. Single. Day.
My salvation is not based on how “good” I’ve been, or how many good deeds I’ve performed. Rather, I cling to an incredibly gracious Savior who takes me as I am … but promises never to leave me that way.
And the closer I grow to Him, the more aware I am of my own helplessness. That’s why I wrote “Crimson” a while back.
Today, I am re-posting Crimson over at Tea With Tiffany. Tiffany asked me to guest-post for her and felt that Crimson was the right post. Tiffany knows what you and I know: That we are nothing — nothing — without Christ.
Perhaps you’ve read “Crimson” before. But might you visit Tiffany anyway?
Tiffany lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her family. She is a devoted follower of Christ and a writer who radiates with Christ.
