1 Timothy 1:9-11
v9 understanding this that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient
Have you ever thought you were doing fine, your relationship with your kids is great, you and your spouse are getting along fine, you are even having great moments with God…then…POW!! You read something in God’s word that completely takes you by surprise, and you discover that you weren’t quiet as good as you thought. You are reminded that you are a sinner. You are reminded that there isn’t really any “good” in you! Well, if that’s ever happened to you, great, good, that’s exactly what is supposed to happen; that’s the purpose of His word. That is what it’s there for, and we all need it. We all need it to show us the areas in our lives that we fail; the areas were sin reigns in our lives.
