Tense Sinner

This morning I decided to read an entire chapter of the Bible. I chose 1 Timothy and was drawn in. Then a little verb zapped me. The verb is what we English teachers call a present tense being verb.

Paul wrote, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.”

Paul didn’t write that he was a sinner.  He wrote “I am.”

Me too. I am too.

I started this blog in 2011 shortly after I finally opened my heart and mind to Jesus as a last resort. My intent with this blog is to share what I learn and feel along my path with Jesus.
