How far does His Love reach?
Can you go too far?
Please read Luke 23:34
Vs. 34 “Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
Beaten, bloody, bruised and betrayed- I did it to you would you ask others to forgive me for what I did to you?
Would you forgive me even before I asked for it?
This is the miracle of the gospel, this is the amazing Good News that is Greater than any news ever before or since.
The thing about this statement that makes it so very poignant to me is that even today many don’t know what they are doing.
In my humble opinion many face some common road blocks to a non-judging, non-condemning Love from Above that is healing and complete. Here are some road blocks:
1) You don’t think your good enough- You never will be it’s only the sick that Christ can heal. (Luke 5:31)
2) You have explained away God through your own wisdom- Your wisdom has holes if it doesn’t include the possibility or error- it’s a journey not a destination. (1 Cor. 1:25)
3) You have been hurt by the church or other religious group- Welcome to the club but the ones that hurt you are not Jesus- keep looking. (John 3:17-19)
4) You can’t see the sense in God’s Love- in human terms it doesn’t make sense this is the difference between someone following Him or following religion (John 3:16)
I am not saying act religious- I am saying be righteous!
I am not saying follow rules- I am saying share Love!
I am not saying I have all the answers- I am saying the only answer that matters is “God Is Love!!”
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
