The Resume

Your resume is your calling card. It’s a summary of your distinctions, what makes you marketable; why you are the ideal candidate for the position. You include your successes never your failures.

In God’s Kingdom, each person’s original resume is reduced to one word, stamped in giant letters. SINNER. That’s it. It doesn’t matter if you graduated from an Ivy League, community college, or no college. Your GPA is no added bonus. No entitlements based on skin color. Wealth and success don’t count. We’re all in the same boat, SINNERS sinking fast, heading for an abyss. That’s what Almighty God sees when He looks at our paperwork.

The Good News is, He not only sees, but He also offers the remedy for our hopeless condition. It is priceless. We get to exchange our fate by putting our faith in the One who died for all of our sins: past, present, and future, the sinless Son of God, Jesus Christ. It’s a free gift, available to anyone who wants it. Anyone who says, “Yes, Lord, I receive this incredible gift of salvation.” He makes everything new. We can begin again. We get a clean slate with an updated resume which reads: FORGIVEN. CHILD OF GOD. SET FREE. MASTERPIECE. TROPHY OF GRACE. OVERCOMER.

Which resume do you choose?
