God created a perfect world, and through the entrance of sin, it became a battlefield. Humanity has tried to gain victory, but we always come up short. That’s why in Revelation 5, John weeps because no one is found worthy. This sermon looks at different life stories and how our best and brightest have come up just a little bit short but ultimately are disqualified. But there is one person, he did win: Jesus.
We give different definitions for justice and righteousness than the Bible does; and it makes a huge different when we thinking about God as judging us. Also we humans like to talk about equality and justice and often fail short because we first start with equality and leave out justice. While God starts with justice, which can seem unfair at the moment, but it ultimately turn out to be true equality.
