Good News! I'm a Sinner

We started a new series at church this morning called ''Are You Open''.
It made me think about where my heart is
Could it be
Angry at what someone else has done.
Guilty because of my own flawed contributions.
Discourage over the whole situation
You choose....

1 Timothy 1:12-16 says
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service. Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.

So in hindsight ''I am a sinner not a victim!''
