Editorial. 20.11.2016. Saints and sinners.

One of the quotations often seen on church noticeboards reads as follows: “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” man kneeling in prayer

People sometimes have the impression that people who go to church each Sunday feel that they are a ‘cut above the rest’.  The truth is that we are all ‘broken’ people in need of healing and forgiveness. And this is what the gospel message is all about.

Jesus said, “I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent." Luke 5:32 

God is willing to forgive the past as long as we are prepared to commit ourselves to change. This change may be a lifelong struggle but by God’s grace and the strength He gives, it will bring its rewards.

How blessed we are to have a Saviour who has made this possible.
