A dead dog sinner!

A dead dog sinner!

(David Eddmenson)

Upon arriving to services one Wednesday evening to my surprise there was 
an old, mangy, rejected, and forsaken dog sitting on the front porch of 
the church building. I was appalled and repulsed at the dog’s sad 
appearance and horrible condition. This poor creature was in bad shape, 
yet all I can remember thinking was, “I wish this dog would go away.”

I am so grateful that when my merciful, gracious, and compassionate 
Savior looked upon me, that His attitude was not like mine. “What is 
Your servant, that You should look upon such a dead dog as I am?” In my 
sight that poor dog was in bad shape — but how much worse do I, a dead 
dog sinner appear in God’s sight?

“Christ died for the ungodly!” Romans 5:6
