We were a mess; we had nothing good enough for God. The prophet Isaiah said it well: "But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like fithy rags" (Isaiah 64:6 NKJV) When held in comparison to God's holiness, our best deeds are like scribbles compared to a Rembrandt and they don't begin to counteract the many wrongs that we have done. In Ephesians 2 we are reminded of this bad news, that we are spiritualy dead, part of an anti-God world system, under the sway of Satan, and guided by our lusts. A lot of bad news . . . but God, who is rich in mercy and grace, comes to our rescue. Listen to hear what He did.
