It’s Why He Came

A minister once sat by the bed of a dying man in a nursing home. As they talked, the man began to recall some of his past sins. He started to weep and then blurted out, “I’m such a terrible, hell-worthy sinner!” The minister said, “That’s wonderful!” Sensing the man’s confusion, the minister explained: “You are a terrible, hell-worthy sinner. But it is wonderful that you know it, for Christ came to earth for people exactly like you.” -Joel Beeke and William Boekestein, Why Christ Came
