Sunday's Thought

Truth Worthy of Acceptance by Bud Hance

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. 1 Timothy 1:15 (NKJV)

Jesus came into the world to save sinners, and no sinner is beyond his saving power. This is one of the most glorious truths in all of Scripture and the most important truth to reach the human ear. All men are sinners and are justly condemned to eternal death. Christ Jesus became incarnate, suffered, and died to redeem them; and, by his grace and Spirit, has the exclusive power to save them from their sins. The apostle Paul calls this saying or doctrine a faithful or true saying. Because God Himself has revealed this truth, it can believed without the slightest doubt or hesitation. Christ Himself by His death and Resurrection and through the mission of His Holy Spirit seals the pardon of the souls of all who will believe and establishes this great truth.

Secondly, It is worthy of everyone accepting it, as all need it. It is designed for and delivered to the whole human race, because all are born sinners and at enmity with God. This saying/doctrine was designed for every man and may be received by all.

Jesus didn't come just to show us how to live or to challenge us to be better people. He came to offer us salvation that leads t eternal life. Have you accepted His offer?
