The List (Reposted from 2010)

Posted 07-02-2018 at 09:32 AM by snowduck

1 Timothy 1:15 - This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" - and I am the worst of them! This Bible verse makes me think of a list that contains the names of everyone (sinful man) who will live, now lives, or has ever lived on the earth, and mine is the very first name on the list, because I should regard myself as the worst sinner of all. We can all think of someone that we think is worse than ourselves and we all like to think that we're not bad people and that if we lead a good life, that will be enough to save us. But the Bible says otherwise. Jesus came to save us, because no matter what we try, we can't save ourselves. This doesn't seem right to us because of our sinful nature that we inherited from Adam and Eve. Jesus' merits and his sacrifice on the cross alone take away all our sin and reconciles us to God. And he does this as a free gift to us, and not because of anything we have done, because we are loved by God. It is difficult for all of us to think of ourselves as the worst sinner, but then we should remember 1 Timothy 1:15 and have faith in Jesus Christ. What About Jesus?
