Grace · Sin · World · Wrong

what’s wrong…

…we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

Ephesians 2:3 ESV

What’s wrong with me… is what’s wrong with the world…

Fleshly desires… passions… wants… filled the wrong way…

Looking back… I wonder why I did some of the things I’ve done…

And I remember… what was wrong with me… is what’s wrong with everyone…

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned — every one — to his own way…

Isaiah 53:7 ESV

But praise God… there is another Way…!

And once you’ve found it… or He’s found you… it’s a reason to pour out buckets of grace… on all that is wrong…

Because what’s wrong with me… is what’s wrong with the world… and it is only His grace which makes me right…

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

2Corinthians 5:16-21 NIV84

Be free… to walk His Way… and pour out grace… on those who do not…

What’s wrong in you… is what’s wrong in them…

They just don’t see it…

YET…!
