Stop waiting till conditions are perfect. Stop delaying till you have fixed yourself. Romans 5:8 says “ while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us!”
If you broke your arm and it’s a messy fracture, do you call your Doctor and say “I’ll be in as soon as I set this and begin healing?”
If your car is broken down in the ditch, do you call the tow truck and say “Listen, I’m in a real mess. Please wait there and I’ll call you to come as soon as I’ve got my mess straightened out?”
My precious friends, I’ve said these things for years.
God is a loving, gracious, “come as you are” Heavenly Father.
God already…I say already loves you!
The Bible says that Jesus came “to seek and to save that which was lost.”
If we could have somehow cleaned ourselves up and made ourselves good enough for God, deserving of Heaven, why would God send His only Son to die a horrible death as full payment for our sins?
Please hear me today. Please know that God put this heavy on my heart to tell you how much He loves you. He wants you to make a start. He desires for you, more than anything, to pray and ask Him to save you and forgive you based on the sacrifice of Jesus that paid for your sins.
Start by saying YES TO God! Just invite Him in. He will help you to change and give you the power and desire to live differently.
I don’t care what your sins and issues are. He specializes in restoration. He knows your wounds and pain and addiction and hurts and depression. Yet He loves you and longs to have relationship with you that is guaranteed to change your life.
Nothing would bless God, or me for that matter, to hear that you have said yes.
Lastly, please read John 3:16-17, 1John 1:9 and Romans 10:9-10.
SAY YES TO GOD RIGHT NOW!
