OPINION: God’s gift to you


There are constant reminders we don’t live in a perfect world. Our world is full of broken people.

We are frequently reminded of how we have missed the mark and don’t measure up. It is easy to be overwhelmed with feelings of failure and disappointment.

I want to encourage you today by reminding you that you are loved!

The Bible tells us in Romans 5:8 “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”

This means that even while we sat in our failures, God loved us enough to allow His Son, Jesus to take our guilt away.

And then, the Bible tells us in Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”

God offers us the FREE GIFT of eternal life. That’s amazing! That’s how much God loves you.

Jesus died that your failures might be forgiven. Be encouraged because you are greatly loved.

I also hope God’s love for you would inspire you to receive His gift of eternal life by trusting in Jesus.
