We sin. A basic and true statement, that we all fall under. No one here on earth is perfect. We all fall short. It happens. But God is GREAT-- He FORGIVES US!
When God forgives us we are CLEANSED. Any bad thing we have done is washed away and we are free to live guilt free! God not only wipes away our sin, but He can help us come away from the sin...
You may think that you don't need to be healed... the truth is that since each and everyone of us has sinned, we ALL need to be healed! Christ saves us, He teaches us how to LOVE by loving us first. Did we do anything to deserve His love? No. Quite the opposite actually. God only loves us and we continually disobey Him, but guess what... He loves us anyway!
God is so AWESOME because He loves us when we deserve to be punished... not only that, but he FORGIVES us! That love is exactly why we should go out into the world and do the same! Because God loved us, we should be loving to everyone around us. We should LISTEN, LOVE, and SUPPORT people--even those people that we don't like.
My challenge to YOU for this week is to FORGIVE people, because God has FORGIVEN you. Go show love to a random stranger, a friend or even family! Love the "unlovable". Make someones day. Bring JOY into someones life. Just allow God to work through you! Share your story or simply share a smile. Whatever it is, show JESUS--Let His light, love and FORGIVENESS be seen in you.
The Mission: share the love and FORGIVENESS of Christ!
