Bible verse challenge to encourage you, day #4!
I absolutely love the below scripture because I was minding my own business when Christ came for me. I was drinking, cursing, having sex, and controlling everything and everyone in sight. I had weight issues, hair issues, style issues, work issues, family issues, financial issues, self-esteem issues, and so much more stuff… Drama… you name it!!!! Just Lost and naïve, living a life of complete darkness apart from God! When Jesus knocked on my door, He did not tell me that I needed to clean up my act and get myself together. He did not leave a "verse" and tell me to call Him when I was ready to make a change. The only thing that He told me, was that He loved me. He told me that He had loved me before I was born. That was it.......
I'm His!!!!! #FOREVER!!💜
“Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.”
