God's grace is available to all who want it—no one has sinned beyond His ability to love, forgive, and heal.
Imagine what the apostle Paul must have felt at the time of his conversion.
Do you think people trusted him immediately after his experience with Jesus? What must the reaction have been from the followers of Christ who knew him only as a murderer? No doubt Paul was forced to suffer their stares and questions. And yet God moved in a mighty way through this former persecutor. Despite Paul’s past, God had a specific plan for him, and in the power of the Holy Spirit, the apostle was used mightily to spread the gospel.
Perhaps you know someone who is hostile to the faith. Can you “preach” to him or her through kind and loving actions?
Perhaps you’re the one who’s hesitating, thinking you’re too far gone to be saved. There is no one beyond God’s loving grace.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
Ask Him to speak to your heart today, and follow Him. You’ll be so glad you did.
