Bugged. Well, not really 'bugged', but a bit of unease happened this morning.
In church we were singing a song which mentions how, when we are in Heaven, we will
be praising God with a 'crown upon our brow'.
The first thing that came to mind was, "Not me-I don't deserve any crowns."
I know, I know-it says in God's Word that we will be blessed in Heaven, and there is mention of crowns...
but I know what a stinker I am.
It's hard to get this concept into our noggins-that when God looks at Christians, He sees them as
bearing the Righteousness of Christ-He sees us as Holy. Us. Holy.
I don't feel Holy, which I guess is good, because I live by faith, not feelings.
Still, I feel that I am not "crown worthy"-I'm just grateful that God has accepted me because of Christ.
I think that is why God so strongly confirms in His Word that we cannot lose our Salvation, that none
whom He has called will be lost. We need to hear that, often. Especially us stinkers.
