I have to share the way I was moved by the preaching at church this morning.
Our crazy youth preacher, the girls kindly call him this because the passion for Jesus explodes out of him in amazing fun ways that you can’t help smiling as he fills you with the word of God.
The message behind the service was simply Jesus will meet you there.
How many times do with hang our head in shame and feel as if we cannot come to God, we are not worthy, not good enough.
To be honest we will never be good enough, we are all sinful by birth. Nothing we do in life will bring us to heaven. Asking Jesus into our hearts is the promise of salvation. We step out to Jesus he will meet us there.
Jesus met the fallen woman at the well, the criminal on the cross. Jesus will meet us where we are, we just have to ask him to.
I needed to hear these words today, to remind myself that if I wait until I am perfect I will never have a relationship with God. That it’s my disbelief in myself that is building the barriers. Jesus died on the cross so that my pathway to God was free and clear.
Wherever you are in life, just ask Jesus and he will meet you there.
“No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we have been saved, just as they are”.
