I'm a Sinner In Desperate Need of Jesus
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
I could share a Bible verse every single day—I’m still a sinner.
I could tell story after story of God’s goodness in my life—I’m still a sinner.
I could write hundreds of posts about forgiveness and grace—I’m still a sinner.
I could take meals and donate money and volunteer countless times—I’m still a sinner.
I could pray like a warrior with conviction and intentionality—I’m still a sinner.
I could have a worn Bible full of notes and highlights—I’m still a sinner.
I could show up at church every single Sunday—I’m still a sinner.
Regardless of my actions—I’m a sinner.
I need Jesus. Desperately.
We like to talk about grace, but sometimes we forget to talk about sin. And we cannot fully understand and appreciate grace unless we first understand and acknowledge our sin.
The truth is that Christ died for us WHILE we were still sinners (Romans 5:8). We cannot save ourselves, nothing we do is good enough—grace is a free gift from God (Ephesians 2:8). If you want to accept the gift of salvation, you simply have to “declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9, NIV).
