“The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.” ― Timothy Keller
I had some thoughts about sin and sinners today that I threw out on Facebook and Twitter. They seemed to resonate. I wanted to post them here as well.
*No matter what you think of someone else’s sin, remember that it takes the same blood of Jesus to cleanse all sins – even our own.
*When you are tempted to talk about someone else’s sin, ask yourself if you are creating an environment of repentance or judgment.
*No one sins in a vacuum… Other people are hurting. Have you prayed for healing of those suffering because of collateral damage?
*We cannot pretend that sin is not sin. We cannot pretend that grace is not grace. Lift up the fallen through the power of forgiveness.
*Just some thoughts from one sinner to another.
Hopefully those are worth contemplating a bit.
