ARE YOU BAD ENOUGH TO BE SAVED?

Here is something I read on Facebook.

ARE YOU BAD ENOUGH TO BE SAVED?

by Blaine Michael Seman

Peter walked with Christ and he denied Christ with cursing.
The apostle Paul heard Stephen’s last words and approved of his murder.
Manasseh was raised in a godly family and still sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists
John Newton, a self admitted apostate, led others away from the faith.

All the above were saved and changed…but you still think you are too dirty to be saved? Am I right?

Here is what Matthew Henry wrote about Manasseh.

“And who can complain that the way of heaven is blocked up, when he sees such a sinner enter? Say the worst against thyself, here is one as bad who finds the way to repentance. Deny not to thyself that which God hath not denied to thee; it is not thy sin, but thy impenitence, that bars heaven against thee.”

What the apostle Paul said of himself…It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.
1 TIMOTHY 1:15

Newton was the captain of a slave trading ship before he became a pastor. To the end of his life he was still marveling that he was saved and called to preach the gospel of grace. From his last will and testament we read:

I commit my soul to my gracious God and Savior, who mercifully spared and preserved me, when I was an apostate, a blasphemer, and an infidel, and delivered me from the state of misery on the coast of Africa into which my obstinate wickedness had plunged me; and who has been pleased to admit me (though most unworthy) to preach his glorious gospel.

Jesus said; “I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
LUKE 5:32

Jesus said; “For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.”
LUKE 7:47

Turn to Christ and live!

All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.
JOHN 6:37

Jesus said: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
MARK 1:15

But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, the sinner!’
LUKE 18:13
