Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – and I am the worst of them all. But God had mercy on me so that Christ Jesus could use me as a prime example of his great patience with even the worst sinners.” (1 Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭15-16‬ NLT)

On March 5, 1986, Sean Sellers killed his mother and stepfather while they were asleep in the bedroom of their Oklahoma City home. Claiming to be a Satanist and possessed at the time, Sellers later converted to Christianity, using this platform to minister to others prior to his execution.

Nobody would argue about Sellers’ identity as an “über sinner”, the worst of the worst. But so are we. The hard truth is that no one deserves Heaven because we all willfully disobey God. Yet His great patience and mercy allows us to be included into both Heaven’s reward and Mercy’s showcase.

As you live his week, take time to allow God to show you where you need to simmer down or become stronger, then give Him the permission to gently change you. While Sean Sellers paid for his crimes against humanity, he also had the chance to fully embrace mercy. Only Jesus holds out that kind of a deal! Take it! You are loved today! (9/29/14)
