I wonder how many people I have met in my life, that felt they were not worthy of God’s love. I remember the woman who never went to church – she felt unworthy to enter what she described as a holy place, being the sinful person she was. I remember the woman who wanted to leave the worship team of her church, after making a sinful mistake. I remember the man who was saved, went to church, tried to live an exemplary live, scared that he will not make it to eternal life.
None of them realised that God’s grace is mysteriously big. We cannot explain it. We cannot earn it. We cannot deserve it.
The sacrifice that Jesus gave on the cross, as atonement for our sins, was enough. There is nothing we can add to it and there is nothing we NEED to add to it. There is nothing in your past too big to be forgiven. Nothing you have done can exclude you from the grace of God. You can only be excluded by choice – your choice.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If it was God’s choice, nobody would be lost. He gave His Son so that you could have life to fullest. Why on earth would you settle for anything less? Guilt is not life to the fullest. Not feeling worthy is not life to the fullest. Drop all of that and settle for grace. Do the exchange – guilt for grace.
His grace is sufficient for your need!
