So.. I can get saved without doing any physical work or sacrificing things?! Sounds too good to be true! What’s the catch?
Has a stranger popped up, out of nowhere and done something for you? Or, have you stepped out and done anything for a stranger with NO returns?
I’ve met and spoken to many people who can’t wrap their heads around being a sinner and believing that God gives them an invitation to be set free from their sins. You know sin… those things that lay heavy on our hearts, that we hold on to so tightly because ‘sssshh’ no one can know about it. (God knows it all and what is still to come and He still loves you).
It took me years of adding extra, unnecessary mistakes to my life because I said “No God, I’ll carry this sin for You. EVEN THOUGH, it says very clearly in Your word (the Bible) that You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ to live on earth as a Man and then die for ALL our sins and rise again so that we may have life in eternity”. And Yes I said ALL our sins. Every evil thought, every harsh word, every past thing we’ve done (and are not pleased about so we hide it) and every future thing we are still to do. Jesus Christ came and died for all of that mess we made in our lives.
HOW the Truth will set you free, is if you believe.
Down deep in your heart, if you can believe that God loves you that much that He sent His Only Son, to die on the cross for your sins. And you ask Him personally to forgive you for being a sinner (God accepts normal conversations as prayers if you were wondering). Then from that moment, going forward and having faith that God has forgiven you (which He has already), you are set free. Every day going forward, making the decision to live in Gods forgiveness for you and that you wont have to sin anymore.
Having faith in God and believing what He has done for you is what will change your perspective on life, completely. Your spiritual eyes will be opened.
Life still won’t be perfect after that because this life is just temporary. But having Gods help and knowing He is there through everything you go through, is what makes this life 100 times more worth it. God gives our lives meaning.
God loves you and He cares for you, there’s nothing to be afraid of if you want to approach Him. He will welcome you with open arms 😊
God bless xo
