    Not a sinner 

    The world, in biblical terms, is humanity against God. The word sinner in the NT is the individual against God. So Christians may commit sin, Gal 6.1; Jas 3.2; 1 Jn 2.1, but are not sinners, in this sense. The NT does not call the saints of God sinners, for they have stopped practicing sin.

    Let us be careful that we do not, by the use of such statements as, “We’re all sinners,” justify the practice of sin and adjust ourselves to a tepid faith that accepts the lack of holiness among us, without which no one will see the Lord, Hb 12.14.

    2-4-2016 Stop The Sins, Begins With Me 

    The resurrected Jesus Christ said: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:15-16 NKJV). The best way to stop sins is to convert the sinner. “Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them” (Colossians 3:5-7 NKJV). “Fornication” seeks “marriage privileges without marriage;” “uncleanness” is “filthiness of body, soul, mind and language;” “passion” is following emotions without reason; “evil desire” seeks what’s wrong; “covetousness” seeks what’s unearned! Clean up society one soul at a time: “Preach the Gospel to every creature.”

    1-25-2016 Saint or Sinner? 

    The line between saint and sinner has been blurred in many people’s minds so they think they are followers of Christ without repenting of their sins! “If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth” (1 John 1:6 NKJV). God’s line has not changed, though: “For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them” (Ephesians 5:5-7 NKJV). Jesus said: “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12 NKJV).

    I am a sinner but I have been… 

    I am a sinner, but I have been forgiven by one who loved me and died for me.

    There was never anything I did to deserve this. In fact, he died many hundreds of years before I was born.  Another man who lived hundreds of years before I was born told me about the one who died for me.

    The apostle Paul wrote, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works,” (Titus 2:11-14 ESV).

    Since I have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, then I am bound to tell others of my salvation and give thanks to God through him for what he has done for me.

    Others may not think that is who I am, but that doesn’t matter. That’s who I must be.

    I am a sinner! James reminds us, “we all stumble in many ways.” I have stumbled and stumbled in many ways. I am worthy of condemnation. I have no claim to warrant salvation. On my own I deserve eternal damnation. But I believe I will escape, where others will not. I believe! That is the key. God has provided an escape route. Jesus says, “I am the way.” I believe; I have staked my life on that; I preach that message. Believe! Repent! Choose God! Choose Jesus! But it is more than lip-service; it is life changing. No longer do I live by my will, but by the will of God. I admit that I struggle and often I fall short, but to serve God is my goal. I deserve condemnation, but I will receive eternal salvation. I wish others would listen and be saved. Will you? This is Just-A-Minute

      Romans 8: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

      2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

      3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

      4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    Single Worst Phrase 

    In my opinion, the single worst phrase, would have to be the rendering of Psalm 51:5 in the NIV:

    “Surely I have been a sinner from birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”
