David prayed, “Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.” (Psalms 51:4).
Job confessed, “I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42:5-6).
Isaiah lamented, “Woe to me…I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”? (Isaiah 6:5).
Simon Peter begged, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” (Luke 5:8).
Paul admitted, “…Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.” (1 Timothy 1:15).
These are just a few examples of saints who acknowledged their utter worthlessness alongside the altogether worthiness and majesty of a Saviour whom none of us deserve.
May we follow their lead.
