The Wedding Dress (new Grace Points devotional)
Here's the script for one our new Grace Points devotionals that will run on local talk radio (AM 1260; FM 107.5) August-September-October, 2011:
Welcome to Grace Points, a ministry of Christ Reformed Baptist Church in Charlottesville, Virginia:
Think of a beautiful, pristine, white wedding dress. Then the woman wearing the dress drops one piece of food from her plate and it hits the dress and leaves a stain. When you look at the dress where is your eye going to go? It’s going to focus on the stain.
Now let’s suppose that this dress represents your righteousness before God. And let’s suppose that in your entire life you’ve only transgressed God’s law a single time. Then consider how the Lord with his perfect standard of holiness would look at that one unsightly stain. Just one sin will ruin a sinner.
Paul said, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
