I was reminded again this week of the human effort to place people into categories of importance and in many cases individuals describing themselves in self important ways. We see athletes telling us they are perfection in their sport, entertainers believing they are the best, Politicians describing themselves as having all the attributes qualifying for our support in an election, and in some cases describing themselves as geniuses. When the truth of the matter is all human beings have flaws, foibles and faults. Charles Swindoll asked the question how did Jesus Christ describe himself. God’s perfection is described in 

John 1:1-4

  1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
  2. He was in the beginning with God.
  3. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made, that was made. 
  4. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

So here we see God’s perfection, Majesty and Power. So, if there was a need to brag Jesus and God the Father can and do describe themselves, and rightly so, as Perfection Personified. To be Christlike is to strive for perfection which is unattainable by humans no matter how hard we try. No matter what we think of ourselves we are not perfect, in fact far from it. Let’s for a minute  look at how Jesus Christ described himself.

Matthew 11:28-29

  1. Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
  2. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you shall have rest for your souls

Gentle & Humble! Yes that is our Savior  with all power and authority yet Gentle and Humble. Is it possible for any of us humans to compare to Christ?  No, not for a nano second. Our frailness and weakness should draw us to the Saviour at all times and for all reasons. For this reason we see the unsaved grasping at straws to attain what is humanly perceived as perfection. Completely missing the fact that the only way to be seen as perfection is as (Saints) in God through the Savior’s blood on the cross. When we look in a mirror, what do we see? Human beings sinners from the beginning. Saved by faith in our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Praise The Lord! We are saved by grace! 

“Sinner saved by Grace”.

Verse 1

If you could see what I once was, If you could go with me
Back to where I started from, Then, I know you would see
A miracle of Love that put me in it’s sweet embrace
And made me what I am today, Just an old sinner Saved by grace


I’m just a sinner, Saved by grace, When I stood condemned to death
He took my place
Now I live and breathe in freedom, with each breath of life I take
Loved and forgiven back with the living
I’m just a sinner Saved by grace

Verse 2

How could I boast in anything I’ve ever seen or done
How could I dare to claim as mine, The victories God has won.
Where would I be? Had God not brought me, Gently to this place
I’m here to say I’m nothing but A sinner saved by grace


Verse 3

Now I grow and breathe in freedom, with each breath of life I take
I’m loved and forgiven, back with the living
I’m just a sinner saved by grace, saved by grace
