A Sinner in Need of a Savior by Pastor Ed Young
Hold it there. Do not move. Look at your fingers. If you are pointing at someone, how many fingers are pointing back at you. How many? Three. So we throw away the Blame Game and we take responsibility for our lives by doing three things, think about the three fingers. The first finger, we take responsibility for our lives by stating the obvious. What is the obvious? If you are outside the family of God, it is saying to God, “Lord, I am a sinner. I have messed up. I have fallen short. I want to fess up and own up to my sins. I admit to You that I have problems and it is because of me.” That is stating the obvious. That will not take God by surprise. The lies, the impure thoughts, the slander, the blame does not surprise God. God knows it and so do others. It is about time for many people here to state the obvious. “I am a sinner in need of a Savior. God, even though I have messed up and failed, I know You love me so much that you sent Jesus Christ to be my sin substitute and rise again and I receive what You did for me.” That is stating the obvious.
I kind of laugh when I am watching the Chicago Bulls play on television and the announcer says this when he is talking about Michael Jordan. “Michael is a great player.” Boy, that is a profound statement. “Michael Jordan is a great player.” Well that is obvious. You just stated the obvious, tell me something unique about Michael. I know he is a great player. So when you are stating the obvious, don’t expect everyone to act surprised.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Grapevine
