“I have come to call not the righteous but sinners to repentance.” Luke 5:32

Good news! This is good news for all. The thing is we all must come to the realization that we are sinners. While many some have accepted Christ, been justified and are sanctified; there are few who are wholly sanctified. Sin is what separates us from Christ. The sooner each of us realizes we aren’t “all that and a bag of chips” the sooner we will be able to recognize the sin in us. Identifying that sin then allows us to confess it, asked forgiveness and turn from it. God forgives and we can all move on, made righteous by the grace of God. Oh sinners respond, answer the call. Receive the grace of God.
