Deep down in their heart and soul each and every human being knows what is good, yet many choose the way of the evil. In this day and age where everything seems to be revolving around “I” and “me” let’s humble ourselves, let’s examine our hearts, let’s invite compassion and mercy in. All we are, we owe it to The Lord Most High, our very existence depends on Him, not on us, ON HIM.
“1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”
When Jesus was sent to die for our sins, He was sent to redeem the whole World. Not just a part of it, not just Israel, or Italy, or Tanzania, or Russia. The Whole World! My distant friend at the opposite side of the world, Jesus paid the price for your sins too. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. And if you ever wondered if Jesus can forgive your sins, the answer is – YES! All you have to do is invite Him into your heart. No special words are needed, just say it as you feel. Ask Jesus to come into your heart today, ask Him to forgive your sins, believe on Him and ask Him to be your Lord and Savior. Remember, He was sent to pay the price for the sins of the whole world.
“8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.”
Today my prayer is that all that have been taught to be pure and without sin, may see the light of God and become aware that everyone is a sinner. I pray that all who believe their good works will make them deserving of the eternal life become aware that it will not. I pray that all who have hope but they are not quite sure if God will have mercy on them, become aware that they don’t have to doubt anymore. To all who have recognized themselves in all of the above: Jesus died to pay the price for our sins. Our hope and assurance is in Him. Believing in Him cleanses our sins, makes us pure and deserving of eternal life in Heaven. There is no other way.
When the dark clouds cover my horizon, who do I turn to? When the enemy knocks at the door of my soul, who do I turn to? When I’m desperate in my human weakness, who do I turn to? I turn to the Lord, mighty and strong. He knows my heart and He knows my troubles. He is my Light in the time of darkness. I cry out to the Lord: “Deliver me Lord, save me because of Your unfailing Love.”
Lord God is so good! He hears our cries. We are never alone. Call on Him and pour your heart out. Don’t underestimate the power of prayer. He listens and He answers to those who love Him and believe in Him. He is faithful! I WILL CALL ON HIM AS LONG AS I LIVE!
