Truth for Today
1 Thessalonians 1:15 15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
I know you have heard the title: “Commander in Chief”. Of course it refers to ultimate military command authority that resides in the office of the President of the United States.
Have you ever heard of “Sinner in Chief”? Paul declared, “This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.” He was saying that he was the head of sinners.
It’s ok to admit that we are sinners. In fact if we say that we have not sinned we are telling a lie and according to scripture the truth is not in us. I know this concept isn’t popular with the “feel good” preachers of our day but OH how necessary it is to face the reality that we are sinners and that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.
He met sinners in the temple and brought hope to them. He met sinners at wells of water and gave them living water so that they would never thirst again. He met sinners who stood in sycamore trees and then He went to their home for dinner. He changed the life of sinners…I know that for certain because HE is changing my life.
LORD, I am sinner…in need of grace…without You I am nothing…my sin Father is ever before me…my bent to sin though LORD is not stronger than Your grace…forgive my transgression and wash me in Your LOVE…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
