Grace · Sin

the worst…

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners — of whom I am the worst.

1Timothy 1:15 ESV

I’m reminded today… of the grace found… in recognizing myself as the worst…

Shared a story… of how He allowed me to do what I said I never would… to keep me from arrogant legalism…

Confessed to the second-grade Bible class… when no one else raised a hand…  I must be more selfish than all of you…

Asked for forgiveness… as I reflected on all the ways my heart wandered today…

His grace… it’s a beautiful… humbling… stunning… thing…

And once you’ve recognized its work in your life… you can’t help but pour it out on others…

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32 ESV
