Two Kinds of People

March 09, 2020, By: Jimmy Scruggs

“Healthy people don’t need a doctor – sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” Mark 2:17
This time leading up to Easter is a powerful season. You can’t have Easter without talking about forgiveness. The fullness of forgiveness requires accepting and offering forgiveness, because you have to do both in recovery if you want to continue to move forward with God and relationships. It starts with accepting God’s forgiveness extended to us through Jesus and the Cross. It means forgiving those who have hurt us and asking forgiveness to those we have hurt, and forgiving ourselves. Forgiveness is God’s prescription for the broken. It starts the process of healing relationally – forgiveness of others and ourselves start with God, but is carried out in relationships with others. “Being willing to be willing,” is our CR motto when we struggle with forgiveness. There are two kinds of people in the world – those who are sinners and won’t admit it, and those who are sinners and do admit it (I know, I have been both). My favorite CR quote is, “If God wasn’t willing to forgive sin, Heaven would be empty.” This Easter season, I pray that you spend (and that I spend) more time in prayer, in reading the Word, and in helping and serving others. I pray that you attend your church, support it and grow with it. If you do not have a church home, I invite you to attend Crossroads Church. Sinners are welcome. “God puts people right through their faith in Jesus Christ. God does this to all who believe in Christ, because there is no difference at all: everyone has sinned and is far from God’s saving presence. But by the free gift of God’s grace all are put right with him through Jesus Christ who sets them free. God offered him so that by his sacrificial death he should become the means by which people’s sins are forgiven through their faith in him.” Romans 3:22-25 If you are stuck in hurt, habit, or hang-up, check out Celebrate Recovery/Crossroads. We meet every Friday night at 6pm. We look forward to meeting you! God loves you; Jesus died for you; His spirit lives in you! Say “Yes” to Jesus!
