It’s who you know…

Guest blog post:

It’s Not What You Know…
but whom you know. 

We see it all the time. At work, a well-connected employee climbs past a well-trained one. A politician gets his ticket dismissed over lunch with the judge. Influence can matter more than merit. “It’s not fair!” we think.

But when it comes to eternal judgment, having a Friend in high places is our only hope.

for all have sinned…. — Romans 3:23
for the wages of sin is death…. — Romans 6:23

No one can earn their salvation, because everyone is a sinner. If we want what we deserve at the judgment, we should prepare for the same sentence as every other sinner. Death is the price of sin.

Our only hope is the influence of Christ, who has all power and all righteousness. He grants favor to the unworthy through His death.

For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. — I Peter 3:18

Salvation comes down to a single question: Do you know Jesus?

He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. — I John 5:12

None of us are good enough to be saved. On Judgment Day, the only influence that will matter is the righteousness of our Savior. And He has all that we need.
