Do you think you are the hero? Are you the champion going out there are fighting the good fight. Are you going to save the planet, are you going to save your friends, are you going to save the country, the constitution, and the American Way? And are you doing it all for Jesus?
That's a shame.
I'm a miserable wretch. I slug along doing what is given to me as best I can. I strive to be good... and fail.
It is a good thing that Jesus is determined to be the hero for me, to suffer and die and win me salvation.
He does it for me.
Even "my works"... I'm simply His workmasnship... even the good that I do, that's actually what He does for me.
He's the Hero. He's the one that does things for you. Any thoughts that flip that around are arrogant, self-centered, and ultimately bound to bring failure and dispair. You can never, never do enough "for Jesus."
He already has done everything for you.
