My blogging friend, Susan, just wrote a post about something we seldom talk about. The blood of Christ--and how His blood makes us right with God. Her blog is called Living the Adventurous Life. Stop by for a visit. There is good news for humankind there!
I'm so thankful that getting into heaven doesn't depend on me. It doesn't depend on how good I am. It doesn't matter what I've done in my life. God still saves me...no matter what. God still saves you...no matter what you've done. Yes...there is forgiveness for us. Oh the precious gift of forgiveness! And all we have to do is reach out and accept it.
Jesus is reaching out his hand to all of us. He is saying, "grab my hand...I'll pull you to safety. It's not safe in the darkness. Step toward my light. I love you...I've shed my blood to save you!" And he continues to hold out his hand. And he will save EVERYONE who places their trust in him!
Jesus explained in the Bible, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him, will not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
