Romans 5:8

​​God's Not Mad at You!

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. 

Romans 5:8 NLT

Do you feel like you are not worthy to approach God?  Well, join the crowd.  No one is.  It is Jesus Christ who makes it possible for us to approach God and receive all the good things He has for us.

Does a fisherman clean the fish before he catches them?  No.  So let yourself be “caught” by Jesus and allow Him to “make you what you ought to be.”  No matter how much of a hot mess you think you are, God loves you like you could never imagine.  Come to Him.  Let Him take out the bad so that the good things that He put into you when He made you can shine bright to be a blessing to you and those around you.  Don’t wait another day.

Say this and believe it:  “Dear God, I know that I am not what I need to be.  I ask Jesus into my life to be my Savior and Lord.  I believe that He died for my sins so that I could return to You and the good plans you have for me.  You are my Heavenly Father, and Jesus is my Savior.  Thank you that my eternal life in heaven is secure and that you are with me to overcome any struggles that come my way in this life.  Thank you, Father.  In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Now tell someone that you have made this commitment and get into a good, Bible-believing church where you can hear the Word and be encouraged by other Christian believers.  Good days are ahead!
