The Friend of Sinners

What a thought that Jesus is the "friend of sinners"! To think that the Creator God of the entire universe would choose to befriend a sinner... a liar, or adulterer, or murderer. The One Who was without sin chose to befriend the one so lost in sin she couldn't find her way home.

All of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God according to Romans 3:23. But Jesus came to change that! He came that we might live apart from sin, that we might be freed from the bondage and chains of sin - of addiction to sin, of the compulsion to sin - of sin itself, in all its ugliness.

He - Jesus - came to give us free, abundant life without sin. What a thought... what a Savior!
