You ungodly one! You vile, helpless, miserable sinner!
(John Wesley, 1703-1791)
"But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness" Romans 4:5
Who are those that are justified? The ungodly-the ungodly of every kind and degree, and none but the ungodly! It is only sinners that have any occasion for pardon. It is our unrighteousness to which the pardoning Lord is merciful; it is our iniquity that He remembers no more.
Thus look unto Jesus. He is the Lamb of God who takes away your sins. Plead no works, no righteousness, no humility, no contrition of your own. Plead alone the sin-atoning blood-the ransom paid for your proud, stubborn, sinful soul.
You ungodly one! You vile, helpless, miserable sinner!
I charge you before God, the Judge of all-go straight to Him with all your ungodliness! Go as altogether ungodly, guilty, lost, destroyed, deserving and dropping into Hell-and you shall find favor in His sight, and know that He justifies the ungodly, undone, helpless, damned sinner!

George Whitefield: "What if you had committed the sins of a million worlds? Christ's righteousness will cover, and Christ's blood will cleanse you from the guilt of all!"

"When we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
 While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
 When we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son."
     Romans 5:6, 8, 10
