What Makes Me A Sinner
March 8, 2016 Year C
What makes me a sinner? According to this psalm, we have a variety of characteristics that define a sinner. These include the following:
- A sinner is a fool (Psalm 53:1)
A sinner denies the existence of God (Psalm 53:1)
A sinner does no good work (Psalm 53:1)
A sinner turns away from God (Psalm 53:3)
A sinner sucks the life out of other people (Psalm 53:4)
A sinner gets rejected by God unless they turn to Him (Psalm 53:5)
A sinner can only be made acceptable by Jesus’ death on the cross (Psalm 53:6)
Even though these qualities make me a sinner, I am still able to be accepted by God because of Jesus and His work on the cross. If I would come to Jesus, He will make me acceptable to God.
Prayer: God, thank You that You have made me Your son. I am still a sinner, but saved by grace.
