Come to Him

There is no one righteous, not even one.

Romans 3:10, niv

“Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves” (Gen. 11:4, niv).

In their pride, the builders of Babel assumed they could work their way into God’s Presence and He would accept them on the basis of what they had done. They were wrong then, and they are still wrong today.

God has said that “All our righteous acts are like filthy rags,” (Isa. 64:6, niv) and “There is no one righteous, not even one,” (Rom. 3:10, niv) and “Without holiness no one will see the Lord” (Heb. 12:14, niv). So how does one get into heaven? Jesus gave clear instructions, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven,” (Matt. 7:21, niv) and “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6, niv). All religions are man’s organized, rebellious, prideful attempt to get around God’s stated will and way and work and Word. Instead of arguing with Him, just come to Him through Jesus.

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
