If you accept Jesus into your life and heart everything you have ever done wrong will be forgiven at that time
By Bruce Mewett
Up until just a few years ago the word APP was probably never used – it is amazing how it has taken over.
Today in the 2020s and beyond it has become the normality – it has taken over entirely.
All these fantastic search engines are available “Free Christian apps – Christian apps for Bible studies – Christian apps for adults – Best free Christian apps for adults” – and the list goes on Infinitum. Of course, all the thousands of others covering a myriad of subjects are mind-blowing. Who would ever have thought it?
There’s an app pretty much for everything these days so it makes perfect sense that there would also be some very helpful apps for Christians.
Well, in Jesus’s time here on earth there were no apps. He (Jesus) preached the word, and healed the sick and dying. He caused a lot of ruckuses but most people flocked to Him. He was the most amazing person to come out of the lowly town of Nazareth ever.
Our God is a mighty God – and He didn’t even have a mobile phone – His attributes and His Word are still broadcast today in a million different ways across the globe. God does not change. Who He is never changes. His attributes are the same from before the beginning of time into eternity.
Before creation, God was already there – before even time God was already there. He is mighty, self-sufficient, independent, loving, righteous and the list goes on.
Phil Wickham sang this amazing song – his version of Amazing Grace. Love this verse:-
“Who breaks the power of sin and darkness?
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger?
The King of Glory, the king above all kings”
No matter what you have done or who you are or how guilty you feel, God isn’t mad at you.
He is SO willing to forgive you, He died for you to pay the ultimate price for your sins and mine – all you have to do is hand your life over to Him,- the change in your life will be absolutely astronomical – I know – believe me! – I was so lost in sin – you just couldn’t take it in!
Forget what the world is saying about God and also forget what you are telling yourself about your failures and what a complete mess you have made of your life. Tune into His word and believe what He says.
It is so easy to listen to what others say about you and it is so easy to believe them. Your feelings can change from moment to moment – and the world out there will love to tell you you’re just not good enough for God – you are way too “out there” for Him.
Well, believe me when I say that God has seen it all there is absolutely nothing he hasn’t seen, heard, or dealt with. My personal life can jump up and scream how true that is – If He can forgive me then He can forgive anyone!
Well, saying all of that – Just how are we able to even come close to God?
In Romans 3:22 – “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.”
That’s pretty awesome if you ask me – NO MATTER WHO WE ARE OR EVEN WHAT WE HAVE DONE!!
And it all revolves around what Jesus did on that cross all those years ago. He took the scourging, the nails, the sword in the side, the crown of thorns, the mocking, the jeering, the spitting, the insults!
WHY? Because of His love for YOU! – Yes YOU!
God will forgive you completely and freely if you come to Him, confess your sin and accept His Son Jesus’s amazing gift of freedom that He paid on that wicked cross all those years ago.
In Romans 8:38-39 “For I am sure that neither death, life, angels, rulers, things present, things to come, powers, height, depth or anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord”
How incredible is this verse? Read it again and again – take it into your very soul and let it take your life and mold it to our everlasting father.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil. To give you hope and a future. CALL UPON ME AND COME AND PRAY TO ME AND I WILL HEAR YOU. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with ALL of your heart.”
How about that for a promise! I will hear you says our Lord and God – seek Him with all of your heart.
If you accept Jesus into your life and heart everything you have ever done wrong will be forgiven at that time.
What a great honour it is to write this blog. Being a child of the Great King Jesus I have had this honour to share my faith here in my blog to you my readers.
If you are in pain, if you are suffering with huge regretfulness in your life (like I was) or maybe overloaded with guilt or shame can I in all sincerity point you to the one who can heal you of all of this – Jesus Christ!
When you read this blog may you get a huge taste of God’s never dying never ending love for you. May you reach out to His love and take into your life His unflinching and undying grace that saves.
May God go with you this week and, personally, I look so forward to writing more and more blogs as I share with you just How God is working in my life.
If you can, please share with me your own thoughts and maybe too if you have any questions that I may be able to assist with, please contact me.
God’s richest blessings be with you this coming week
