Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: September 21, 2016

[Some] of us have written our own Bible verse: “God helps those who help themselves” (Popular Opinion 1:1).  We’ll fix ourselves, thank you.  We’ll make up for our mistakes with contributions, our guilt with busyness.  We’ll overcome failures with hard work.  We’ll find salvation the old-fashioned way: we’ll earn it.

Christ, in contrast, says to us what the rope-holding girl said to me [when I was about to bungee jump and was scared]: “Your part is to trust.  Trust me to do what you can’t.”
