The Great Christmas Scandal – 7
29 “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
Jesus Alone makes you wHOLeY! While many say this they don’t practice this and that is evident in the way they don’t accept others. Jesus Never turned anyone away, He never once told others they didn’t measure up, He Never made people feel bad except for those who would try to create barriers between The God Who Radically Loves you and you!
Here are some key versus to keep handy when the guilt and shame mongers come around:
You are (notice the Past tense)
Redeemed – Is. 63:9, Luke 1:68, Gal. 3:13, 1 Pet. 1:18
Reconciled – Rom. 5:10, 2 Cor. 5:18-20, Col. 1:20-21
Justified – Is. 53:10-11, Acts 13:38-39, Rom. 5:1, Rom. 5:9, Rom. 8:30, Gal. 2:16-17
Sanctified – John 17:18-19, Acts 26:17-18, 1 Cor. 1:2, 1 Cor. 6:11, Heb. 10:8-11
Purified – Acts 15:8-11, Heb. 9:22-25, Gal. 3:1-10, Titus 2:11-14
Loved – The Bible, John 3:16 sums it up rather nicely but if you look at The Whole Bible as a story of the path of Love God has taken all humanity on I believe it will help heal any hurt and pain that you may be wrestling with.
