A theologian once said that the only thing we contribute to our salvation is the sin from which we need to be saved. That’s true, but as today’s devotional explains, we must contribute that! God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Timothy 1:151 Timothy 1:15 English Standard Version (ESV)
15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
I Timothy 1:15
“What can Christ do for a man who has no sin? He came on purpose to save his people from their sins, but if we have not any, he has nothing to do with us. How shall Christ be bread to a man who is not hungry? How shall he be life to a man who has life in himself? How shall he be the Alpha and Omega of the salvation of a man who is the first and the last to himself, and who begins and carries on his own salvation? No; a doctor does not go to heal the man who has no sickness, and Christ does not give his alms away to those who are not needy. When he makes a feast, it is for the poor and the hungry, for they cannot recompense him, except by giving him their gratitude and their love.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1898), p. 376]
