Who would want a filthy, wicked sinner like you?

Matt Chandler has a great answer:

Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. (Romans 7:24-25)

It’s so true, though — we are wretched! We deserve Hell. God should drench us with His wrath forever — it’s what we deserve. But thanks be to God, Jesus Christ has borne the penalty for our sins and has brought us life by grace through faith in Him — NOT because of anything we’ve done, but because of His grace!

(Thanks to Seth for sending me the video)
