Pass or Fail

I remember a particularly challenging class I took in college. I worked hard but just didn’t keep up. I was used to getting As but when I finished this class I was thrilled to see a B+ on my grades report. It wasn’t an A but it was good enough.

I know you’ve heard the phrase, “God doesn’t grade on a curve.” In fact, God only gives two grades. Pass and Fail. In His grading system, a B+ isn’t good enough, not even an A-.

God expects a perfect grade. We either pass or we fail. And…nobody passes. Nobody. Scripture says we all fall short.

” For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” – Romans 3:23 (NASB)

God wants perfect obedience to His commands. So the hard truth is that we will all fail miserably. But cheer up!

If you put your trust in Jesus, you can still do your best. But in the end, when it’s time to take the test, the creator of the test goes in your place and passes with a perfect score.

Jesus never fails.
