My heart is that you would comprehend His love, and turn and hear Him whisper peace and kindness to you. There is no question– we’ve sinned and rebelled and screwed things up. But He doesn’t judge, or give us what we deserve. Jesus gives us the most wonderful present ever.
We really have nothing to bring. We are like the poor shepherds– and not at all like the three kings. When it comes to spiritual, or eternal things we are completely bankrupt. The Holy Spirit who wants to speak to us, we more or less confuse His voice. People tell us about Jesus, and we turn it into ‘gobbledygook.’ We simply can’t connect the dots. Don’t you wonder why you think there must be something more? That is the plight of a fallen heart.
But Jesus did die for us. And, furthermore He paid the ‘sin-debt’ that we owed. When we receive Him as our personal Savior, we will find the forgiveness that we need. Seek Him, and ask for understanding. Things are really not what they seem. His deep love for you goes beyond what you can possibly imagine.
There is another tree. One we decorate with sparkling lights, the other becomes the only way we can be saved. “And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.” (John 12:32).
If you would like, I’m just an e-mail away. I would be honored if I could offer you some kind of simple guidance. No weirdness, just a friend.
