The other day I was visiting with an old friend. During the conversation I asked, “I understand that you married Jane. Why?”
“Because she’s different,” he replied.
“How different?” I asked.
“She’s the only one who would have me,” he explained.
But there’s One Who will accept everyone – unconditionally. Young or old, rich or poor – our condition does not matter. Jesus said, “Come to me,” and then He added, “if you do come, I will not cast you out.”
In all my years of serving God, I have never heard anyone say, “I came to Jesus, but He would not accept me.” It has been just the opposite. Many have told me that Jesus was the only One Who would have them. They knew that when they came to Him, they finally discovered the only One Who accepted them in spite of all that they had done.
To become a Christian, all you have to do is to come to Christ. Take Him at His Word.
Prayer: Father, I come to You right now with all of my faults and failures, all of my sins and shortcomings and exchange my guilt for Your grace and mercy. Help me to take You at Your Word: in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
