"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16 (NIV)
I think these are the most powerful words ever written. God sent Jesus to die for us. We certainly don’t deserve it, and we will never be worthy, but we are covered by God’s grace anyway. What do you have to do to receive this grace? It’s simple – you have to ask God to wipe away your sins and accept Jesus as your savior.
I love this song by Chris Tomlin. It is called “Indescribable.” One of the lines at the end says, “You see the depths of my heart, and You love me the same.” He is not waiting for us to be perfect – Praise God – He wants us where we are now!
