Are you afraid that God won’t save you my friend?
For every sinner who wants to be saved but fears (like I once did) that you’ve been too bad for God to save & forgive you, I have fantastic news for you.
8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
He loves you & He paid for your sins exactly as you are. The very fact that you desire forgiveness of your sin-guilt is proof of His drawing you to Himself for salvation. None of us ever get to a place where we deserve His Grace, (that’s what’s so special about it).
Do you fear that He’ll reject you (like I once did) because you abandoned your faith of years-ago, and you’ve sinned too bad for Him to accept you back? Maybe your profession of faith years ago (like mine) was based in faulty doctrine. Whatever it was, it’s history now, all you have is “right now.” So what are you going to do with your “right now?”
Stop worrying about what you can’t change of the past, and run to Jesus right now. (Read about the prodigal son in Luke 15.11-32), or just take God at His word in John 6.37 about His receiving you: “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
Did you hear that friend? Jesus absolutely will not turn away anyone who comes to Him for salvation.
Run to Jesus my friend, be reconciled unto Him, and cast all of your burden of guilt and shame away forevermore.
17 “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
