Just As I Am

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
I once knew a teenage boy who had a lot of bad habits in his life.  Actually he was filled with sin and there was nothing at much at all in him that you could have called good.  He felt pretty sure he was about as good as most of the people he knew, maybe not all, but most.
At times it bothered him and he tried to change his ways but it seemed like he would always fall right back into the same old habits.  One night he was in church and something was said in the sermon that caught his attention.  He felt like he was about the worst person he knew and that there was nothing he could do about it.
Something else was said and it made him realize that he couldn't do anything to change.  He had to trust the only one who could change him.  It was at that point he confessed the fact hat he was a sinner and asked Jesus to come into his heart. 
I am so thankful that God loved us while we were still sinners because I was that teenage boy.  Jesus did for me what no man can do for himself.
