Think of the worst person in all of history. Do you have it? Maybe it was Hitler or Bin Laden or… Now, think about whether you would die for that person. If they were about to be killed, would you step in the way? Would you take a bullet for that person or push them off the train tracks? Most of us would say, “what, are you crazy? Of course not!”
I love what Paul writes in Romans: “God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”
If you have been wondering about this Jesus character and what he is all about, here it is: he loves us so much that he took a bullet for us, even when we didn’t deserve it. All of Christianity, when you get rid of the hypocrisy and the institutions, still comes down to this: Jesus died, because of love, for you and me.
You might reject Christians and their religion, but give Jesus a chance. He wants nothing from you and He needs nothing from you. All he desires is to have a relationship with you. You don’t have to work for it, act a certain way to get it…He offers His love, acceptance and forgiveness without charge.
Just receive it today.
