Everytime I read revelations or think about the end of days I get so flipping scared. And uncomfortable. Why? Because I am so, so, so, unworthy. My mind, heart and soul is so sinful. So horrid. I deserve nothing. And my heart begins to beat – because God’s judgement is not to be messed with…
BUT – then this fear of God and reverence turns to something beautiful as I fall on my face in awe of what Christ did. As I surrender to the Lord – the Messiah! He agonised over me – and over you. He cried out, was pierced with nails, and was sacrificed. He bore this punishment so that I don’t have to be perfect.
When I dont do things that perhaps I should have done, I can ask God to forgive me and help me to forgive myself.
You see grace is a wonderful thing. Jesus has won! And now we live, allowing this fear to change our hearts towards pleasing God. We declare our faith in the unseen, and begin to truly live – Not being perfect but being like Christ so that others may see God’s holiness at work in us, and come to know this for themselves.
This world deserves nothing but judgement however Christ offers freedom from condemnation and eternal life to those who believe.
John 3:16 – for God so loved the world, that He gave His only son so that whoever believes in Him shall not die but have eternal life!
