You Are Not Being Judged, You Are Forgiven

As I look in the mirror and review my life, I look at myself and ask, 'How could I ever be acceptable to God?'

CANAAN, VT - I now look back at decisions I have made, mistakes I have made, and realize what a fool I was. Always looking for self gratification, the easy way out. Trying to do good things for all the wrong reasons. Seeking attention for myself instead of preforming acts of kindness for the glory of God. If I were the judge, I would be finished. Stuck in sin and totally unworthy I would not be the Lord's first choice to enter the kingdom of heaven. 

Lucky for me, Jesus is the 'just judge.'  

Prayer will bring us closer to God 

As I was choosing a passage to read in the gospel today, something made me feel that I should turn to the gospel of John. So, that is exactly what I did. There in John 3 was what I needed to hear. 
 
Jesus was not sent to judge us but to save us. That is precisely what He did.

Jesus came to this world to live as we live. He taught us how to live and then He took on all our sins and saved us. We are all forgiven everything we have ever done because of His great love. It is so true that what is not possible with man is only possible with God. It is also a great example of God's great love for mankind. He made us free to chase after all the temporary things of this world neglecting our Creator for things that pass away.

It is only through His great love that we who are sinners and totally unworthy have any hope of ever being saved. Now that we realize that we are forgiven and can share in eternal life with the blessed Trinity, all the saints, and the angels, what will we do next?

This is what has brought me to this blog. To share my inner most thoughts, fears, joys, and revelations with anyone who may be interested enough to read what I might have to say. Even Jesus couldn't reach everyone and He was the Christ. The Son of God comes to this world to save sinners.

If my musings can help just one soul realize that Jesus loves them just the way they are and  know that they don't need to worry about anything because they are forgiven then I have succeeded.

All you need to do is love God with your whole heart, your whole soul, and your whole mind. Once you do that, then you won't want anything else. God's forgiveness and His love will be enough. 

Help spread the Word, Give a Bible.
