"So I died to the law-I stopped trying to meet all its requirements-so that I may live for God. My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I do not treat the grace of God as meanlingless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die." Galatians 2:20-21

There are so many reasons to be thankful for God sending his son to die a death he didn’t deserve. And this is definitely one of them. I am so thankful that God doesn’t just judge us solely on how we obey the law, because I would never be able to ever live up to such standards. I am sinful and I lack so many things. But God in his overwhelming grace, allows me to be saved not just by my works, but also by my faith and my love for Him. He is such a worthy God and he is worthy to be praised. I only wish that I would spend more of my time just focusing on how wonderful he is instead of falling into the traps of this world and forgetting that I have the most wonderful creator in the world right in front of me. It makes no sense that he would die for me. But he did, and I don’t deserve it. And because of that alone, God is so worthy
