If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.
1 John 1:8
The key in making a decision to follow Jesus Christ and also in receiving salvation is admitting you’re a sinner. Your life can’t change and you cannot be saved without this admission of guilt. Too many people think that following Christ is simple, it is not. Some think the day they make the decision they magically become part of a group of non-sinners, nope! You become part of a body of people who all fall short but strive to do better, always admitting they are and always will be sinners saved by God’s grace alone.
