Titus 3:3–For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.
What’s the difference between a follower of Jesus Christ and the most vile and evil sinner? One has accepted Jesus Christ’s gift of mercy and the other has not. That’s the only difference. Occasionally Christians can get a “holier than you” attitude when comparing themselves with non-Christians, forgetting that the one decision to follow Jesus Christ and receive His forgiveness is truly the only thing separating us from them.
Lord, help me never lose sight of Your mercy in my life. Help me to look upon everyone with love recognizing that they are only one decision away from receiving Your mercy and forgiveness.
