To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?
Jesus loves you. I don’t say this as some holier than thou type. I say it as someone whose been broken and hurting and defeated. I say it as a person who had a major drinking problem. I say it as a person who has screwed up royally and who still messes up far too often. No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done, He loves you and He wants to help. He wants to show you a better way. The old cliche holds true, He loves you just as you are but He loves you too much to let you stay there. On behalf of all the Christians who’ve judged you, turned you off and offended you, I am sorry. We don’t always represent Him well, but He is good, even when we’re not and He loves you with a perfect love that He will never take away. The Bible tells us that God demonstrates His love for us in this, while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
No Christian is a Christian because he is worthy of it. We are Christians because Jesus is worthy. We’re not saved because we’re good and He doesn’t love us because we are good. He loves us and saves us because He is good. I tell you this because He has radically changed my life and He is helping me find the purpose in my life. My life has value because He values it, not because I am somehow worthy. What He did for me He will do for you.
He is worth it. So trust Him. He loves you and nothing can separate His love from us.
