Goal Twenty-three:

Goal twenty-three:

Ever get the feeling that you need to be “perfect” for God? Well, I’m going to tell you right now, put it out of your mind! Reasons? There are several: one, it is impossible for a human being to be perfect! And two, we don’t need to be perfect. The reason Jesus died on the cross for us was because we weren’t perfect (and we still aren’t!) and because we can never save ourselves from our sins. In fact, thinking that by doing good deeds we are earning God’s love or salvation, we’re pretty much mocking His gift! Now, I’m not saying don’t do good things. You should! What I am saying is not to do good deeds to save yourself; just do it to please God!
