The Christian is Not a Good Person

Startled by this title? 

Here is a simple and true explanation given by Martin Lloyd Jones with his references:

“He is a vile wretch who has been saved by the grace of God!

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.’ Romans 5:6

‘But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ Romans 5:8

‘When we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son’ Romans 5:10

‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the worst!’ 1 Timothy 1:15”

This Easter weekend please give consideration to these truths

and the thoughts of John Newton (below):

Amazing grace

How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost

But now am found

Was blind but now I see.

……

And celebrate the eternal blessings gained for us on that first Easter.

Happy Easter
