Why "Sinner Saved"?

Why did I choose the title "Sinner Saved" for my blog?

The most important thing about me is that I am a sinner and I am saved.

Being a sinner is not unusual - we are all sinners. Before I was a Christian, I didn't think I was a sinner. Admittedly I didn't think I was "good" - I knew I wasn't perfect but I thought that I was "good enough" to go to heaven. After all I wasn't a murder or anything so I had to be good enough didn't I? Wrong.

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"

Romans 3v23

Once I had become a Christian I knew that I was a sinner. But, along with the knowledge that I was a sinner came the gift of salvation. I am too sinful to earn a place in heaven. I could not even come close. But I am saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God"

Christ lived a perfect life and died on the cross to take the punishment which I deserved for my sin. Thanks to his sacrifice I am saved. Whoever believes in him will be saved.

That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.


Being saved does not stop me from sinning. I am no less a sinner now that I am saved. So my blog title reminds me of the two most important things about me:

  • I am a sinner.
  • I have been saved.

Thank you for sharing... it was very encouraging for me to read this this morning... reminds me of a dream I once had where I believe God showed me why I needed salvation... even if I hadn't killed someone!

Thanks again!

Romans 3:23 was one of the first Bible verses I memorized in Sunday School. Love your blog site. I have actually visited it several times. I always enjoy reading your posts. Peace and Blessings.

Yes, your blog title says it all!

I look forward to reading your reviews of The Woman in White and/or Far from the Madding Crowd.

Glad to hear you will not be without a good washing machine for long.
