Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.
Every human has something in common. We are all born sinners. From the day we are born to the day we die, we are sinners. We break God’s law and do and say and think about things that are wrong. Every human is capable of committing any sin. The seeds for all sins are within us. We are born with it. We are all rotten sinners. And because of that sin, we deserve eternal punishment separated from a Holy God.
That is the bad news. The good news of course is that we have hope. See the Bible says, While we were still sinners that Jesus came and died for our sins. He took our punishment on the cross. He suffered that we might not. Our hope is in accepting His sacrifice for our lives. He offers us a free gift, to be saved from our sins. We can only receive this gift by accepting it.
Have you accepted it? Have you been saved from the punishment your sins deserve? If not, make today the day you do. Call out to Jesus, ask Him to save you. Ask Him to forgive you. Turn away from your sins and towards God. Make this the day you decide for Jesus.
Dear God, I am so sorry for my sins. I have no hope but You. Thank you for saving me and forgiving me. Thank you for dying for me. Thank you for being my Savior. Amen.
