Am I Too Bad To Be Saved ?

think 5Actually, you are in a "better" position (if such a thing were possible) to be saved, than someone who thinks they are "too good" to be saved !

You have got over the first "hurdle," as it were - that of seeing your need of a Saviour, and admitting your guilt !

Did you know that the chief of sinners is already IN HEAVEN ??

The apostle Paul says, in 1st Timothy 1 verse 15:

"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief."

Are you an alcoholic ?
Jesus saves, and His Blood washes whiter than snow !
Are you a drug addict ?
Jesus saves, and His Blood washes whiter than snow !
Are you immoral ?
Jesus saves, and His Blood washes whiter than snow !
Are you wicked, sinful, a blasphemer,  a "no hoper", down in the gutter sinner ?
Hallelujah ! JESUS SAVES AND HIS BLOOD WASHES WHITER THAN SNOW !

John Newton, a rough, hardened sailor, was well known for his profanity, coarseness, debauchery and recklessness. Yet, God in His Mercy saved him, and he wrote those  famous, well-loved words:

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found. Was blind, but now I see.

Finally, let us examine  Luke 18 verses 9-14.

The Lord Jesus told of two men who went into the temple to pray. One was a Pharisee (a very religious man), and the other was a publican (they were regarded as great sinners by many).

The Pharisee, when he prayed, told God that he  fasted twice a week, gave tithes, and was not like other people, such as extortioners, unjust, adulterers, and then, to really "rub it in,"  he said that he was not like this publican standing beside him. How right he was ! For this publican was on the "Royal road to blessing " !   But of course, he meant it  in a derogatory way. He thought he was "better" than this sinful man standing beside him.

What a contrast when we come to the publican's prayer ! Let's look at verse 13:

"And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto Heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Now, read what the Lord Jesus had to say about this poor publican, this sinner, who asked God to be merciful to Him:

"I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (verse 14)

What an encouraging piece of Scripture for someone who feels they are too sinful to be saved  ! It was sinners whom Jesus came to save ! Come to Him now ! He will not turn you away !

"Come poor sinner, lost and hopeless,
Jesus' Blood can make you free.
For He saved the worst  among you
When He saved a wretch like me.

And I know, yes I know,
Jesus' Blood can make the vilest sinner clean.
And I know, yes I know,
Jesus' Blood can make the vilest sinner clean.
