John 3:16 is enough
“The God who knows everything about us so loves us” – Pastor Mike Patz
How could anyone love me if they knew every dirty part of my life, every hurt, every word I said, every single thing I did or said that I regret? No human being would.
BUT JESUS does. He knows the depth of my being, He knows my decisions before they happen, and He SO loves me still. And He SO loves you too, sweet friend.
I am so bad, so imperfect, and so sinful that He had to die, BUT so loved that He was glad to.
This is Easter. This is the gospel. This is the truth, my sweet sister. He died on the cross with the scars from OUR sin, our imperfect nature, not His own, and He was glad to. For me, for you, for all of us.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16. This is enough.
You’re never too dirty for Jesus. You’re never too bad for the gospel. He died for you. And He rose again to fulfill the promise to you: death could not hold him down, and it won’t hold you down either. All you have to do is believe.
Hallelujah, you have won it all for me. Death could not hold you down. You are the risen King!
