Hello everyone and God bless you all! It is a beautiful Sunday here in Colorado and my family and I are just relaxing today. I took that photo of the double rainbow last Sunday. We had been getting some good rain and it is always cool to see two rainbows like that. Seeing rainbows reminds me of God’s promises. Not just His promise to never again flood the world, but all of His promises. His promise to be loving and forgiving never changes and it reminds me that we are never too far gone to turn to Jesus!
“You are forgiving and good,
abounding in love to all
who call to you.”
Remember that today wherever you are at in life. No matter how bad you have sinned, you can always turn to the Lord! Whether you have never walked with Jesus or you walked with Jesus for a time and have stumbled and you feel like you can’t come back. Don’t believe that lie! You can come back and Jesus wants you to come back! If you have never known Him, He wants to know you! He wants to save your soul!
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
Even now He is drawing you into a relationship with Him! God loves you! He loves you so much that He died for you on a cross to forgive you and give you eternal life!
“For 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.”
Jesus speaking in John 3:16
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
No matter what you have done, come to Jesus! Jesus is not going to condemn you. He is going to love you and heal you with His deep love and forgiveness! He died for us to set us free from sin and death!
“Since the children have flesh and blood, he to shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death–that is, the devil–and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
“Blessed are they
whose transgressions are
whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man
whose sin the Lord will
never count against
Many of us have walked with Jesus for many years, yet we still don’t fully grasp the depth of God’s forgiveness. Do we fully understand that our sins are completely covered in the Blood of Jesus Christ and we are perfectly forgiven? It is never too late to turn to Jesus! As long as you have breath in your lungs, you are alive and there is great hope! You are never too far gone to turn to Jesus! He is waiting for you with open arms to wrap you in a loving embrace and once you are His, nothing can snatch you out of His hand!
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
Jesus speaking in John 10:28-30.
Come to Jesus! Lay down your burdens and sins at the foot of the cross and let Him lift you up in the power of the Holy Spirit! Jesus is the answer and He is calling you home!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Jesus speaking in Matthew 11:28-30
As the Apostle Paul so boldly said in the power of the Holy Spirit:
“Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.”
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Blessed are those who believe in Jesus and trust Him fully to forgive their sins! Jesus died for every sin that has been or ever will be committed and none of us are ever too far gone to come to Jesus! Rest in His forgiveness and be at peace. If you have strayed, please come back. You will find Jesus is still loving and forgiving and He never left you and He never will!
Grace and peace to you all!
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
…because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake
