Are you a sinner?
Do you see yourself as a sinful person? Why does it matter?
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explains why it’s important that you recognize yourself as a sinner.
“Let me put it plainly. If you do not accept this description of yourself apart from the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ, then there is no need to argue about it, you are just not a Christian. If you resent all this you are not a Christian, you are not yet convinced and convicted of sin, and you are not a believer in Christ, though you may have thought you were. If you in any way object to this, you are automatically putting yourself outside the kingdom of God and the Christian faith. This description of man in sin is the simple truth, the horrible truth. That is what sin has brought us to. Thank God there is a way out of it…”Oh wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me…? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
-Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, re. the Bible’s description of man in sin
