2 Cor.5:18,19 NKJV “Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”
Believe it or not, you are forgiven!
God has already reconciled you to Himself. Jesus has closed the gap; the sin problem is permanently settled. The sins of all mankind have been erased from the account books. Your trespasses are not counted against you, Jesus took your sin away.
You had no say in the matter! God chose you in Christ, and adopted you into His family. Your creator and Heavenly Father doesn't need your permission to love you! Your acceptance or your refusal can not change the love that God has for you. His love and forgiveness is unconditional; The New Covenant is irrevocable.
It's up to you, if you choose to participate or not; but your choices cannot negate His love and forgiveness. Even if you reject or ignore Him, He has included you in His eternal plan. Do you really think that your sins are greater than His grace?
Does it make you angry when I tell you, that you had no say in God's decision to love you? Get over it! Quit running from the very person who can take away that empty feeling inside you: the sense that you are missing something, and don't know what it is, or how to find it.
Jesus said, “Come unto me, and I will give you rest.”
Let Him be your Good Shepherd, Your teacher and healer. He came to bind up your broken heart, and take you out of your self-imposed prison. He will take the burden of remorse and self-recrimination from off of your shoulders. He will help you become the wonderful person that you know that you were meant to be.
The good news is, that, God has fixed the sin problem without your help! You can enjoy the benefits of His grace by simply believing Him and accepting the good news of your salvation.
It's a done deal! Receive the gift of eternal life!
Quit listening to the disinformation, and mis-information that impugns and distorts the character of your Heavenly Father. God is love, period.
The law has been rendered obsolete: your relationship with God is not based upon your performance. God has changed everything at the cross, and He sealed the deal at the resurrection.
His offer to you, is eternal life, not eternal probation. Your forgiveness has already been given. You will enjoy the indescribable joy, and the peace of a clean conscience, and a new heart, when begin to believe wonderful news of your reconciliation with Him.
God bless you, as you trust in His grace!
