Justin Buzzard: Grace is for Broken and Sinful People

"Grace is for sinners—for broken, sinful, wounded, flawed people. Grace is for people who have realized that they cannot fix, rescue, or save themselves or those around them.

Receiving and enjoying grace requires honesty. No more pretending. No more attempts to prove yourself. No self-righteous fig-leaving. But instead, nakedness, exposure, and cries for help. Humility.

To receive a relationship with Jesus (the one love who will never leave you and always love you) you need to bring something to the table. The one thing you must bring to the table is your sin.

Sin, Grace, and Faith—these are the three ingredients for a life of freedom. I am a sinner. Jesus is a great Savior. Jesus has more than enough grace for me and all my faith is in him, not myself.

Grace is for sinners. Not a sinner? Then no grace for you!"

“I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance” -Jesus (via)
