Publisher's Description

To say ‘I am a sinner’ is to stare boldly at a fundamental reality that many people don’t even want to glane at. But when we acknowledge that painful reality in our lives, several great things become clear. The greatest benefit of acknowledging our sinfulness is that it makes Christ and his work precious to us. Like Jesus said, ‘Those who are well have no need for a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance’ (Luke 5:31-32). Only sinners need a Savior.

That’s the beginning that leads us to grace. This is not a depressing thought. It recognizes that to get to the heart of marriage, we must deal with the heart of sin. A great pastor once said, ‘Till sin be bitter, Christ will not be sweet.’ He was getting at a profound truth of the gospel. Until we understand the problem, we will not be able to delight in the solution. Grace is truly amazing because of what we&quo;re saved from. There lies hope for sinners who say ‘I do.’
