I’ve been feeling seriously under the weather the last two weeks. Flu, antibiotics, colitis. My brain is in a fog and I just haven’t been able to write. However, I’ve been reading. A lot. And I didn’t want to skip today’s blog. So I’ve chosen to give you a taste of some else’s blog because his stood out to me this week as the most clear message of the gospel. Simply and truthfully stated.
But God—who set me apart even before birth and called me by His grace—chose, to His great delight, to reveal His Son in me…” Galatians 1:15-16
No images today, just an introduction in the hopes that you’ll read on, particularly if you’ve ever received the message that you’re not enough, that you have to do something in order to receive the heart and Spirit of Jesus, that you need to become someone in order to receive the love and grace of God.
Here’s a little teaser from his blog post titled, The absurdity of being too far gone to be forgiven:
John the apostle said this about Jesus (bold-type added):
“He died in our place
to take away our sins,
and not only our sins
but the sins of all people.” (1 John 2:2 NCV)
Who is included here? Everyone, right? When did Jesus do this? 2,000 years ago. How many of your sins were in the future when He did this? All of them.
