“Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.'” John 14:23.

“There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:22b-24.

I’ve met many, many Christians in my life, and many of them have incredible testimonies of how God saved them. There is something every believer has in common, and it is: There is no way any of us would be here without the all-powerful love of Jesus! Was any one of us anything before Jesus saved us and changed us? No! We were sociopaths, rebels, criminals, legalists, troublemakers, lost causes, hypocrites, and sinners without hope, without merit, without faith, without love, without life, and devoid of even the idea of righteousness. But that’s not who we are now. Now we are new creations, healed by Christ Jesus our Lord. God truly does the impossible!

Never think for a minute you are beyond His mercy and grace.

Read Romans 3:21-26.
