Are you any better than them?
Oh, Those Filthy Sinners by eJcalado
Oh, Those Filthy Sinners

Português --> Ah, Esses Nojentos Desses Pecadores

ENGLISH HERE:
“Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness, and forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads thee to repentance?” Romans 2:4

There is this terrible trend among many Christians: despising the ones not reached by Christ’s saving grace. We must, of course, denounce sin and preach repentance and obedience. Yes, we must preach what God wants us to do. Although we must never forget that the only thing in the universe able to make us repent and obey God is God’s grace through his Holy Spirit’s work. “And this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of GodEphesians 2:8. Without Christ’s gracious work we are “dead in our transgressions” (Ephesians 2:5), completely unable of doing anything but sin. It is God who comes to our help, opens our eyes and then enables us to live a life of holiness. This is GOD’S work, not ours. It is HIS merits, not ours. That is why there is no logical reason for us to think we are better than anyone, after all, it was not us who saved ourselves, but it was Jesus. No, you are not intrinsically better than anyone for being a Christian. Surely you are in a better place, but if it was not for God’s work you would be exactly the same of even worse than the worst sinner. So instead of thinking you are better than the others, what about being humble as Jesus taught and praying for sinners so they will see Christ’s light and be saved too?
