We hope this funny phrase (one that we use all the time, ha!) could be a Gospel conversation starter to share the hope that we find in Christ. We can (and should) boast in Him and His work on the cross, knowing that we have had an overwhelming debt paid on our behalf.
1 Timothy 1:15
“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.”
The world tells us to “listen to our hearts” and our feelings as the ever-changing, subjective fount of morality in which anything can be justified, uniform for no one. Instead, we rely on the Word of God as our source of truth and ultimate authority. His Word is sufficient for us!
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?”
Proverbs 14:12-13 “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Even in laughter the heart may ache, and the end of joy may be grief.”
Proverbs 28:26 “Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.”
This was part of the answer RC Sproul gave to the question, “Since God is slow to anger and patient, then why when man first sinned was His wrath and punishment so severe and long lasting?” “...what’s wrong with you people? This is what’s wrong with the Christian Church today. We don’t know who God is and we don’t know who we are. The question is ‘why wasn’t it infinitely more severe?’” He explained prior to this how merciful God was to Adam and how much He provided and would provide... “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” —Lamentations 3:22-23
