“The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God I thank thee, that I am not as other men…” (Luke 18:11).
Man in nature does not see that he needs grace, but when we see what the scriptures say about his fallen condition we see that he needs grace and needs it desperately. It is a painful experience to be convicted of being a sinner in the sight of a Holy God, but what joy when in the sweet tones of the gospel that troubled soul is able to see Jesus as the savior of even the chief of sinners. He comes to see that he can contribute nothing to his salvation but it is all by grace through the redemption accomplished by Jesus Christ. Grace is wonderful!
