"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved"- Romans 10:13.
This post is for anyone out there who believes that they've messed up too bad to be redeemed, saved, or used by GOD. Let me start by reminding you that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD (Romans 3:23). In fact, if Heaven is a place where only perfect & sinless individuals go, only one person would be there- that person is JESUS CHRIST! See, we assume because someone attends Church regularly, is a Pastor, or quotes Bible verses with ease, that they must be saved. We make these individuals a standard & mistakenly compare our Christian walk with theirs. The problem with this comparison is, Salvation is then reduced to "works". The truth is, outside of CHRIST, there is NOTHING (no amount of works or good deeds), we can do to redeem ourselves. If works could save us, we wouldn't need a Savior. We are ALL saved by GOD'S grace & mercy. This is a GIFT from GOD alone. All HE asks is for us to BELIEVE in HIS Son. The good news is, this "gift" is offered to EVERYONE. From the Pastor to the prostitute. From the choir director to the convict. Let me remind you, many of individuals who GOD used to make the greatest impacts didn't have the most ideal backgrounds: 1. Saul (Paul) was a murderer. 2. Rahab was a prostitute. 3. Samson was a womanizer. 4. David had a man killed & committed adultery. I could go on & on. The point I want you to understand is this, Christianity is not reserved for the “worthy”, nor does GOD limit HIMSELF to the spiritually pious. The truth is we're all battered, bruised beggars at the doorstep of GOD’S mercy. Wherever you are in life, please know that you are loved by GOD. HE has a purpose & plan for your life. It's not about your mistakes or your past. It's about HIS Son dying on the Cross for YOU. Receive HIM into your heart as your Lord & Savior today. For me, it was the greatest decision I ever made. I encourage you to make this decision as well. - 13 minutes ago
