Jesus Wants You To Know – Part 1
Just in case you didn’t know …. Jesus loves you just the way you are, not the way you could be and not because of the way you were. He loves the you, you are right now and He wants you to know that He doesn’t think any less of you because of what you’ve done wrong today, because you’ve already been forgiven for all those things you’ve done wrong or will do wrong.
How do I know?
Why would a God who wants to force you to worship Him send His only son to be beaten, battered and bruised and in the end willingly crawled onto a cross to have make Himself forsake His son if he didn’t love you and me from the deepest recesses of His being?
It isn’t possible because such a sacrifice requires a love more powerful than most of us can comprehend.
But it’s more than that; He wants you to know, that just like the adulterer who was to be stoned. He didn’t condemn her but stood between her and her accusers, causing them to walk away. Just as He said to her simply, “where are your accusers?” and “Neither do I condemn you”; He is saying the same to you.
We are all guilty of something but as believers we are forgiven. It’s that simple!
So, today just know that that Jesus loves you, just the way you are, broken pieces and all. If you know someone who struggling with guilt encourage them with this knowledge that they are forgiven too, because of what Christ did for them.
“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”
