I am not a Christian who thinks that I am better than anyone one. I’m the Christian who is unequivocally thankful Jesus died for a sinner like me! Romans 5:8 says, “God demonstrated His love for us in this: While we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” This verse should acutely remind us of how sinful and frail we were before Christ paid for our sins. Sometimes as Christians, we are tempted to look at our lives and be proud of what we see. The truth is, we would be nothing without Jesus’ payment for our sins. As I reflect on this passage in my heart and mind, it does two things. First, it encourages me. When we stop and think about someone in this world giving their life for another, we are very impressed. Whether it be a soldier, teacher, mom or dad that gives their life, we applaud that individual, and rightfully so! This passage tells me that it is not very common for people to give their life for others, even if they are a good person. With that in mind, think about Jesus for a minute. He wasn’t just any ordinary man dying for another; it was the Son of God dying for sinners! What an encouragement to every Christian! Not only does its encourages me, but secondly motivates me. It behooves us to live our a lives striving to serve the one who died and saved us to serve in advancing His kingdom agenda! So no, I do not for a second think I am better than anyone not to mention, a better Christian. Truth is nobody is better than anybody. Therefore, our focus should be to independently do better today than we did yesterday! A humble start to a victorious end!
