Chief Sinner
February 06, 2024
“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” 1 Timothy 1:15 (ESV)
The Bible teaches us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. That means that no matter who we are or how long we have been saved, we have all sin. We are also taught in the Scriptures that as a penalty for sin, we should offer sacrifices to God and to be forgiven. For some sin the penalty is death, but we who are saved can be thankful that the sacrifice for our sin and the penalty of death for our sins have already been paid for by Christ. Therefore, every day we should be grateful for being saved. The Scripture reminds us, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. I encourage you today to be thankful for Christ coming into the world to save you. You may not want to admit that you sin, but you do, we all do, and that is why it is more incumbent on us to give God praise for sending Jesus to save us from our sins. You cannot look at everyone else and point out their sin, when you have your own to look at and to be forgiven from. I am grateful that Jesus Christ came to save us from sin, and I know that I am the foremost of those who sin, but Christ paid the price for my sin and I am also the foremost forgiven and the most grateful for Jesus. Since I know that I am forgiven for all my sin, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for sending Jesus into the world to save me from my sins. Thank you for wiping all my sins way and giving me another chance. Thank you for all you do for me. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
