Day 9

a picture of the person who has gotten you through the most

(c) 2004 LMS*

Jesus Christ has gotten me through more than any other person.  I am reconciled to the God of the Universe because of Jesus.  My relationship with the Creator is set right, because Jesus lived the life I could not live and died the death I should have died.  No one else could offer me a way to God--that's why Jesus has gotten me through the most.

"But in our time something new has been added. What Moses and the prophets witnessed to all those years has happened. The God-setting-things-right that we read about has become Jesus-setting-things-right for us. And not only for us, but for everyone who believes in him. For there is no difference between us and them in this. Since we've compiled this long and sorry record as sinners (both us and them) and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we're in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ."

(Romans 3:21-24, MSG)

*Since Jesus lived over 2,000 years ago, there aren't any actual pictures of him.  This is a charcoal drawing I did in high school.
