“If I guarantee you an ‘A’ in the class, will you stay in it?” the college professor asked the overwhelmed student.
She wisely took the deal, and promptly made an “A” all on her own.
Once the professor took away the threat of failure, the student thrived.
Christ has offered us the same deal.
In Christ, we already have an “A.”
We can never lose any of Christ’s love, nor can we gain any more of it.
We can come to Christ just as we are, at any point, and we’ll find nothing but love and grace.
My friend Randy Wilson shared the story of the professor in church on Sunday. Crowder’s song “Come As You Are,” (at the bottom of this post) could have been the theme song to Randy’s powerful sermon.
