Scripture: Hebrews 13:15
Published: various

A group of scientists decided it was time for someone to go to God and tell Him He wasn't needed anymore. One of the scientists volunteered and so he went to God and said, "God, you know, a bunch of us have been thinking and I've come to tell you that we really don't need you anymore. I mean, we've been coming up with great theories and ideas, we've cloned sheep, and we're on the verge of cloning a human. So as you can see, we really don't need you."

God nods understandingly and says, "I see. Well, no hard feelings. But before you go, let's have a contest. What do you think?"

The scientist says, "Sure. What kind of contest?"
 
God says, "A man-making contest."
 
"Sure!" said the scientist. "No problem."  He bends down and picks up a handful of dirt and says, "Okay, I'm ready!"
 
God replies, "No, no no...You go get your own dirt!"

Application:

We can't replicate the creative power of God, we can't even produce our own dirt. Neither can we replicate the righteousness of God described in His holy law and demanded of us by His holy nature. Here, once again, we must rely on God to do for us what we are incapable of doing for ourselves. And that's exactly what God does in Christ.

"Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise--the fruit of lips that confess his name" (Hebrews 13:15).

Scripture: Philippians 3:9
Published: as posted on Grounded In Grace (facebook)

Repent of your sin to become religious, repent of your righteousness to become a Christian.

(Dr. Mitchell Dillon, founder of Illustration Exchange)


Application:

"I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God's way of making us right with himself depends on faith" (Philippians 3:9, NLT).

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:21
Published: “Time Keepers to Introduce Leap Second June 30,” published January 06, 2012 by News Corp Australian Papers on FoxNews.com
 
The introduction of an international atomic clock in the 1950s standardized (and revolutionized!) the way the world kept time. Oscillating exactly 9,192,631,770 (over nine billion) times a second, it is an incredibly precise device for measuring the passing of time—too precise, perhaps. 
 
Now, the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERRSS) has determined that it will be necessary to add a second to our timekeeping in order to stay in sync with the Earth’s natural timing. That’s because slight deviations in the Earth’s rotation result in some days being ever so slightly longer than others. This might not seem a big deal today, but these fractions of seconds can really add up. Over the course of time (say hundreds or thousands of years) they can add up to minutes, hours, or even entire days. 
 
“Leap Seconds” were first introduced in 1972. The last one was added in December 2008. The next Leap Second will be added on June 30, 2012. 

Application:

More exacting and precise than an atomic clock is God's moral law. Even in the full course of eternity, it will need no adjustments, no recalibrations. God's law is perfect just as it is.

Yet, no one who inhabits this planet, no matter how hard they may try, is able to live in perfect synchronization with God's moral mandates. Our small deviations here or there may not seem like a lot, but they add up.

This doesn't mean that God's law is too precise. What it does mean is that we are all in need of a leap, not in time, but in righteousness. For this we must look to God, through His Son, to make that adjustment.

"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Scripture: Isaiah 1:18

I used to work in the carpet cleaning business and enjoyed success selling our pet urine removal process. I carried a high powered black light in my van and upon smelling pet odor, would ask if the homeowner would like to see the extent of the damage. Being composed of proteins, urine glows under a black light. With the lights out and shades drawn, the homeowner would follow me through their house. Usually, there were far more spots of dried urine than the owner expected and often it could be seen on drapes, stereo speakers, the back of the couch, and splattered on walls. The reactions were often quite dramatic. One lady said, "I don't care what it costs, just clean it up!" Another said, "I'll never be comfortable in my home again." 


Application:

The black light didn't cause the problem, it only revealed it. The offense was there all the time, causing a bit of a stink, but when the extent of the problem could actually be seen, most people were ready to do something about it.

We live in sin to the extent we get comfortable with it, but when the light of God's righteous law shines upon our lives, we can see our offenses for what they really are. 

It would have been cruel for me to show homeowners their problem without being able to help them. God shows us our violations of his holiness so we will accept his help. He too is in the cleaning business. By the blood of Christ our sins can be washed away and the gift of eternal life secured.

"Come now, let's settle this," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool" (Isaiah 1:18, NLT).
