Sometimes, in life, we feel that we have done so much that He wouldn’t accept us. But…when you read God’s Word you find people that He has used in His plan who were murderers, killers, adulterous, liars, harlots, even some who were not Jewish and a few who were people that God condemns completely, yet they were all used in the family line leading to Jesus. I know that was a very long sentence but to give you the backstory of all of them is just too much.
Why did I include all of the different people in the paragraph above? Because, when you begin to think about Jesus or even if you are thinking that He can’t use me or even why would He want me? God used a donkey to speak to Balim when it was needed. He knows you down to your molecules because He created you in every way by knitting your DNA together and giving you your talent and your personality. Why am I telling you this? Because there are so many people who think that God doesn’t exist or that He doesn’t care about us or more personally…me or you!
Jesus came to take your place on the cross. It was your sin and my sins that He came to pay the price for and it was those sins that nailed Him to the cross. So in the most intimate way, God loves you. He knows each of us more deeply than we know ourselves and He wants a relationship with us. He wanted this relationship in the beginning with Adam and Eve and for a while, He had it with them until Eve started talking with a snake.
It only takes a second for you to realize that you need Jesus in your life. Sometimes, that second that you say, “Jesus help me!” is all that you will have. If you know that you need Him in your life, I pray that you will make that decision soon before it is too late.
