me+God = more than enough! you+God = more than enough!
God isn’t asking us to be perfect, He is asking to have a relationship with us!
Jesus paid it all, not partial, ALL! He made a way when there didn’t seem to be a way!
Jesus came to open the way for us to be able to have a relationship with God and approach Him boldly with a humble heart.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life … He is the only way to the Father!
You want to know how much God loves you? While we were sinners, Jesus died for us!
16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
–from John 3:16
If anyone thinks they are perfect, they will be humbled because other than Jesus there are no perfect human beings. Don’t allow pride to pump or puff you up so much that you will end up being taken down or humbled or tripped up or opposed!
So now that we know there aren’t any perfect people, we need to take hold of the fact that God is well aware of that and loves imperfect people! He is calling us into relationship with Him through Jesus Christ that we can be made clean through Jesus!
We need to take hold of the fact that God’s love is greater than our mistakes!
Unlike in the old testament where they had to keep sacrificing for the various mistakes, Jesus paid the price, once and for all, He doesn’t have to get back up on the cross, He paid it all, taking on all our mistakes and nailing them to the cross!
Turn to Jesus and invite Him into your heart today! Ask Him to forgive you and to come in and help you with the rest of your life! Yes, in this world we will have troubles and trials, but with Jesus all things are possible! We can take heart when we face troubles and we can consider it pure joy when we face trials!
So now that we know that nobody is perfect, let’s go out into the world and love people! Just as the bible teaches us, let’s love God and love people! God’s love is personal so let’s go beyond the surface when we are building relationships! God wants an intimate relationship with us! So we need to spend time with Him and invite Him into every situation! His love never fails! His love never gives up! His love never runs out on us!
