Today Reminder – 04 May 2017

A reminder for today
You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel. (Hebrews 12:24)

When you love someone, you love the whole person. All that they are. Their whole being. You accept them completely with all their mistakes and all their faults. You will even go out of your way to help them better themselves, because of your love for them. Many people make the mistake to think that you must earn God’s love by being a perfect person and if you have made mistakes in your life, God will not accept you. Now let me tell you that forgiveness is one of the most powerful weapons we have against evil. Forgiveness towards other, but most importantly is self-forgiveness. 

It is much easier to forgive someone else, than to forgive yourself. This grip of sin on you is driven by the enemy who continuously reminds you of your flaws. Jesus did not die for the good ones only. He died for all. He also said; "Healthy people don't need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent." 

He loves you! He loves you just as you are, and when you truly repent and ask for His forgiveness, he will forgive you. He will go out of His way to help you and heal you so that you can completely forgive yourself. It is a process, but it is one that you are not alone in. He knows you better than you know yourself and there is nothing He wants more than for you to be the whole person you are. Do not allow the world to define who you are, but find your definition in Jesus. 

You have come to Jesus. He accepts you just as you are and He adores you. He loves you so much that He gave His life for you. Let the brokenness go and start with healing and forgiveness. I will walk this journey with you as we seek Him more and more. He is the light of the world and the hope of all nations. 

Lord, walk with us as we journey towards you. Help us to heal our brokenness and find forgiveness. We thank you for your grace and we give you our hearts. In Jesus name.  

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
