I am so thankful God didn’t send anyone but Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. We would have a hard time being willing to die let alone die for an adulteress, a murderer, a bigot, a racist, a thief, a liar, a bad friend, someone who’s deeply offended us, a rapist, a harlot, the arrogant, the proud, the jealous, the lowly, the wealthy, the poor, the annoying, the selfie obsessed, the childless, the woman who aborted, the doctor who performed the abortion, the Hilary supporter, the Trump supporter, the “never Trump” supporter, the one who abandoned her kid, the one who sexually abused a child, the parent who bruises their child…
Dying for our sins is what saved us, dying for our sins (while still sinners) is the very thing that should humble us to our knees and force our face to be in His word with humility and thanks.
Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.”
Matthew 7:3-5 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
1 Timothy 1:13-15 ” Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.”
John 3:16 ” For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
