ARE YOU TOO BAD TO BE SAVED?
ARE YOU TOO BAD TO BE SAVED? I am sorry but the title of “the worst sinner” has already been taken. And that person has been saved through the immense patience, love, and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. God saved this “worst” person to show that every sinner who is willing to come to God and ask for and accept His forgiveness can be saved and have eternal life. Does that blow your mind?
Here is what the Apostle Paul said about himself, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners —of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life,” (1Timothy 1:15-16 NIV). Too bad to be saved? Not according to God. And after all He is in charge! “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” (John 3:16 NIV).
