“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believesin him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the worldto condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” -John 3:16-17
I was at a conference recently, listening to a Christian defense attorney speak. Her job is to defend clients that have been accused of a crime and make sure they get a fair trial. Someone in the audience asked her how she is able to spend time with rapists, sex addicts, murderers, etc.
She responded, “There is humanity in everyone…sex offenders, rapists, murderers, etc… We tend to label people by their worst act, but we are all worth more than our worst act. God sees the parts in us worth saving.”
Aren’t you glad that regardless of what we have done or will do that God saw and the parts in us that were worth saving?
If you are a Christian, let remember that we are not called to love the sin, but we are called to love the sinner. Everyone is worth more than their worst act, you and me included. God sees the parts in each person worth saving, it’s time that we start seeing the same.
If you feel like you could never have a relationship with God because of who you are or what you have done, I can promise you that God sees something in you that is worth saving. He created you to have a relationship with Him, in spite of knowing everything you would ever do.
What you need to realize is that regardless of what you’ve done, there is no Christian that is more deserving of a relationship with God than you. The Bible says we have ALL fallen short of the glory of God, regardless of what we have or have not done. I am not saying there may be no consequences to what you may have done, but I can promise you that if you’ll submit you’re life to God, He will give you a brand new life. For God, you were worth sending His Son to die for you.
If you aren’t sure whether or not you have a relationship with God, or if you’re sure you do not have one and would like one, please e-mail me, I would love to talk to you about that.
Remember: We are all worth more than our worst act. God sees the parts in us worth saving.
