As I look at myself and all the imperfections I have, all the mistakes and sins I continually
make I am humbled by the Lord’s grace and mercy He has extended to me.
That’s not just my story but it’s OUR story.
God in his mercy and grace doesn’t leave us in our mess.
He cleans us up and changes us.
He forgives us and gives us a second chance.
And that is what I call the beautiful story of our lives because His love is beautiful.
I think of the woman in Luke 7:37 who the bible tells us was a sinner. We don’t
know exactly what she did but it is clear she was not popular in her community.
“When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “if this man
were a prophet, he would have known who is touching him and what kind of woman
she is – that she is a sinner.”
But even though the Pharisee had written her off as a lost cause, Jesus saw her differently.
He loved her and forgave her despite knowing all her sins. He didn’t reject her and cast her away.
So don’t listen to the lies that say you cannot be forgiven.
Don’t allow people to tell you that you are a lost cause. That’s not true.
Jesus loves you and extends grace, mercy and forgiveness to you no matter how badly
you have messed up.
You can go to Him for help anytime.
God bless you friends.
