Stop trying to impress God…


I heard someone say this during a conversation I was a part of this past week, this stopped me cold when he said it.

If God is really God – creator of the universe, savior of mankind, the essence of love & goodness & holiness & all that… how in the heck am I supposed to impress Him?!

I can serve Him, love Him, honor Him, and so on – but impressing Him is about trying to perform/tap-dance my way into his good graces… which is ridiculous!!!. In Christ, I am LITERALLY in His good grace(s).

My Point: do you (or I) REALLY think so highly of ourselves, that we think we can impress God?

MORE HIM, less me
