As an unbeliever, until I was twenty-six years old, I remember, clearly, my life before I found Jesus. I remember the anger and the frustrations at the world. I remember the offensive comments that I made about God as an atheist. But, most of all, I remember the feeling of being alone
Just this week, I had a conversation with someone about their life and coming to Christ. They said that they had done so many things wrong in their life that they knew God wouldn’t want them – honestly, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry
To laugh wasn’t for belittlement but the realisation for so many people in the world today. I know that feeling. I wrestled with it myself over fifteen years ago…
The realisation that God’s children are living life away from their Saviour, and Heavenly Father, simply because of the fear of what God would say…people don’t feel good enough to come to Him “as they are.”
Therefore, my thoughts in that split second towards that person made me want to get on my knees, there and then, and cry for their soul.
Friends, we may know someone (or a lot of people) who have turned away from Christ, or have never met Him. Yet, they simply feel that this life they have led is too late for God to love them
We need to be that person who reminds them it is never too late to come home to God!
All this week, I have had the words “𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐍𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐒𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐡” going over and over in my mind, and those four words break me. They break me because I was that person, so far away from God that I thought that hell was where I was destined
God does not want 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐨𝐧𝐞 to go to hell, and yet, the world tells its occupants that it will undoubtedly be more fun.
My challenge this morning, is if we are commanded to 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐝, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬, this doesn’t just mean that we are to love our Christian Circles
It’s time that the world knows that it is never too late to find God’s love – no matter what has happened in their life
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”2 Peter 3:9
