I know this sounds like a silly question and to many people it may be, but all of us need Him. We need Him for our soul and the comfort that He brings to our heart, even before we accept Him. Jesus never leaves us, even when we haven’t accepted Him as our Savior, He is only a prayer away. He is near you during your best days and He is close to your heart on the worst days of your life.
God told many people in the Old Testament and in the New Testament that He would never leave them or forsake them. Why can God say this? Because, He knows what is going on your life and He knows the purpose that He has planned for you. God loved each of us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty for ALL of our sins. Every sin that you have done in your life, regardless of what kind of sin it might be, God loves you! He hates the sin, but He has always loved us, because all of us are sinners. The thoughts of sinful behavior will still attack your mind even after you give your heart to Jesus, but He gives each of us the strength to resist the temptation to sin.
This is the reason that I write here this blog and the messages that He gives me. None of this comes from my own mind except by the Holy Spirit’s influence. Just as He gave me the sermons that I spoke for over nine years as a pastor at a local church. I can’t come up with all of this on my own but God can give me the words just as Jesus and the Holy Spirit gave the words to all of those writers in the whole Bible. God loves each of us, but He doesn’t love the sins in our lives. Truly, even one sin is enough to keep you out of Heaven if you haven’t repented of your sins and asked Him to come into your heart.
I illustrated this one time with a sheet of paper, as white as possible for a sheet of paper. But I took a fine point felt pen and touched it and I said that one dark spot can come between you and an eternity with God if you haven’t asked Jesus to come into your life to cleanse you from those sins and forgive us of those sins…large and small. Stealing a pen or a bag of chips breaks one of the Ten Commandments and that is enough to keep you from Heaven. Jesus can bring you salvation through your acceptance of Him as your Savior and your belief in Him for that Salvation…no matter what kind of sin you have been in. He can pardon you, forgive you and make you whole again. The empty place that you have felt most of your life is the place where the Holy Spirit is supposed to be. Invite Him in and give your life to Him today.
