You think, you are such a great world-class sinner that not even Almighty God can rescue you? Or you think you have never ever wronged in life? Don’t flatter yourself! Nothing you could ever do is bigger than what Jesus has already done for you on the cross. When Jesus declared, ” It is finished” (Jn 19:30), he meant that the full price for sin had been paid – even if you’re Hitler. And there is not even one who is righteous (Rom 3:9-23).
Look at Jesus. He asked the Father to forgive the very guys who nailed him to the cross. If he was willing to forgive them, he’s willing to forgive YOU too. If you doubt that, it might help to remember that God forgave…
* Peter, who denied he ever knew Jesus (Jn 18:15-27; 21:15-22).
* David, who committed adultery and had the husband of the woman killed (2 Sam 11-12).
* Paul, whose first career was persecuting Christians (Acts 7:54-8:3; 9:1-16).
God loves you. Full stop. No strings attached, no matter what. He’ll forgive you if you just ask him to (1 John 1:9-10). And once you’ve confessed to him, those accusations you keep hearing-they are not from him.
