The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone. Psalm 118:18 NLT
There is a popular theme in movies to have the main character rejected in the beginning. He or she has been discredited in their professional community because they developed a system that the experts in their field considered useless. So it results in job loss and influence. Then one day, something strange would occur and the experts will try everything they can, to set it right and prevent a disaster but the harder they try, the more deadly the danger becomes. The main character would understand the problem before them, yet no one would acknowledge the importance of that character in the solution. Just before all is lost, the main character resolves the issue with the rejected system and is restored to his or her former position.
Man has a problem. It’s not a new problem but they, just like the people in the movie, believe that they have the solution. They dispel the assessment of the expert in the field and refuse to believe the source of the problem, which is, “for we all have sinned and are in need of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23. The word all is an inclusive word; all places everyone on earth in one group: rich, poor, young, old, all includes everybody!
Before man can admit their wrongdoing, they try everything to resolve the problem on their own: good works, right living and hosts of other things but none of those things could bridge the gap between God and man. God has set His standards for reconciliation; good deeds are not the solution. The price of reconciliation was paid by His son, Jesus Christ. John 3:17 says, “God did not send his Son into the world to judge and condemn the world, but to be its Savior and rescue it!” Like the characters in the movie, you may try other things, but God only accepts His Son as the solution to the problem of sin. You can’t fix it, but Jesus can.
Though for Today: Friend, only Jesus can solve the sin problem.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
