“Just as you are”

That phrase and lyric is really starting to get on my nerves. We actually believe that God likes us just the way we are. I think that the Bible tells us otherwise. When God says that we are DEAD because of our trespasses and sins(Eph 2:1) – I don’t think he likes to say that! As a matter of fact I know he doesn’t because he sent his Son, the Messiah, to get us OUT of that situation. Therefore don’t say “God accepts me just as I am”.

What God DID was make a way out for you! He is offering you a promise! To stay “just the way you are” is to REJECT that promise! God makes it plain that to accept his offering you must CHANGE, Repent, the Kingdom is coming!
