Christ doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. Romans 5:6
We may have all heard whopping great stories of the one that got away’ by exaggerating fishermen or whopping great lies told in the playground by school boys. It is not untrue to declare the world is full of multitudes of whopping sinners.
People are often puzzled when someone dre to point out blemishes in their characters have been unable to see.
The Word of God’s love to a prodigal race reminds us of what it cost God to send Jesus to die for our sins. It surpasses reason, but should win our hearts. Isaiah 53:5 “He was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed!” Hebrews 9:26 He came once for all, at the end of the age, to put away the power of sin forever by dying for us. 1 Peter 3:18 He died once for the sins of all us guilty sinners although he himself was innocent of any sin at any time, that he might bring us safely home to God.
There is only one remedy for sin. It is salvation purchased by the blood of Jesus at Calvary. We will remain whopping sinners, frowing worse, unless we accept God’s salvation which is greater, and much bigger than any sin.
