Creflo Dollar Jesus: The Bridge

Jesus’ objective on the earth was to initially save His people from their sins. His people were the Jews, who were trying to obey the Law of Moses. The Law of Moses was the Ten Commandments, which later included 613 laws that derived from the original ten.

Although it sounds like an oxymoron, when God gave the Ten Commandments, it wasn’t intended to make the people good. The Law’s ultimate objective was to show people their sins, and demonstrate their need for a Savior (Romans 3:20, Galatians 3:19, AMP).  In doing so, it brought sin to the forefront, amplifying the sinfulness of the people. The Law illustrated a glaring separation between God—Who is perfect—and human beings, who are not (2 Corinthians 3:7, 8). The Law was impossible to obey.  For instance, if a person broke just one of the laws, he was guilty of breaking them all (James 2:10). And when he did, curses, death, guilt, condemnation, and various punishments followed (Deuteronomy 28:15-68). The Jewish people sacrificed animals as sin offerings, which temporarily atoned for sin, but it did not permanently bridge the gap between God and mankind (Hebrews 9:11-29).

Creflo Dollar Don’t Run from God

Creflo Dollar Many years ago, I was at a local mall where I bumped into one of my church members. This young man sat in the second row of every service and he never missed a conference at the church. He was a faithful and active member, but after becoming tangled up in sin, he stopped coming to church. It seemed as though he had fallen off the map and disappeared. Instead of running to God, this young man was running away from Him.

When he saw me, he looked surprised and a little uncomfortable. After some hesitation, he came over to shake my hand. I told him that I hadn’t seen him for some time and asked where he had been. He became nervous and started stuttering. He said, “Well, I, uh, I don’t know what happened. I just hit a rough patch I guess. I got caught up in some mess, which I’m now trying to work through. I know God isn’t happy with me, so I’m trying to get my life together before I come back to church. I want to get my life right before I go to God.”

I said, “Son, let me tell you this: You can never do anything to earn your right standing with God. It has been given to you as a free gift. Jesus has made you righteous, and you are righteous by faith. That is why Jesus died for you. Even though you messed up, you are born again, and you are already right with God. He loves you, and He isn’t mad at you. If you will look to Jesus, He will help you out with this situation.”

Many Christians live in misery because they have convinced themselves that they have messed up beyond restoration. They believe they are useless and worthless. They simply get themselves to the point in which they cannot freely accept God’s forgiveness. The truth is they cannot forgive themselves for the things they’ve done.
