A Poem
"Because I need a Savior" by Jean B Almonord

Because I need a Savior
By Jean-Bertho Almonord

I always thought that I was self-sufficient.

I work and earn a decent income; I pay my own bills and do not depend on others; I take care of my own personal health.

Well, at what age did I become self-sufficient? Possibly eighteen.

Recently, a guest came to my house and we were speaking about life, religion, and spirituality.

She said something along the lines, "and then, there is the whole sin problem." "Do you know that most religions have a notion of sin: wrongdoing."

I was puzzled for a while. I did not know what to say. The conversation eventually ended.

I mused on the thought for many weeks: couldn't come up to a conclusion.

Last week, I had an epiphany. I cried, "if the sin problem is so big, who doesn't need a savior?"

In fact, Jesus forgives sin.
