An Awful State

Journey to the Celestial City #2. In our continuing look at John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress," today we find the man whose name is Graceless continuing to be wracked over his upset condition. His grief is further complicated by the book in his hand. Upon reading it, Graceless is moved to exclaim, "What shall I do to be saved?" And the Bible is the only book that speaks to humankind's awful state. We are in the bondage of enmity with God, the chains of disobedience, the prison of sin. It's what the Bible says about our condition. But, thankfully, it doesn't leave us there. "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) More to come in the next blog post. Check back soon. (To read this entire blog post series, scroll down to "Pilgrim's Progress Series" in the left sidebar.) pp 2
