I'm back with a quick verse to hopefully encourage you as you go about your day.
"Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over
the transgression of the remnant of His heritage?
He does not retain his anger forever, because He delights in mercy.
He will again have compassion on us, and will subdue our iniquities.
You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea."
And here I am, yet again reminded of God's great love for us. Who can understand why God would choose to love us? Why would he choose to set us free from our bondage of sin? Why would He allow us to cast all our guilt and shame upon Himself? Why would He care enough to allow us to thrust His precious Son into death so that we could be thrust into life?
I can say with absolute certainty that it's not because we deserve it. There is absolutely no reason we should inherit such a wonderful Salvation.
So what is it? What changed God's mind? Or rather... Who?
Yes, my friends! As simple as it sounds, it's true! Jesus died for us all! Because of Him we can enter into heaven with the blood of Christ sprinkled upon us, securing us a place in heavenly paradise for all of eternity. All we have to do is Believe. Believe that Jesus paid the ultimate price for us. Believe that He rose from death and raised us into life with Him. And by accepting Him into our hearts, we are allowing Him to take control of our lives and shape us into who He wants us to become.
Just remember, no matter what you've done... God's mercy is greater!
Here's an amazing song I heard recently. Please listen! ☺
