    Sow to yourselves in righteousness, Reap according to kindness. Break up your fallow ground; For it is time to seek Yahweh, Until He comes and rains righteousness on you. Hosea 10:12 WEBI grew up on a farm and over the long cold winter, the ground of the fields would become so hard that water would ...

Never Too Late

  • He said to Jesus, 'Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' Jesus said to him, 'Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.' Luke 23:42 WEB

    Two thieves were crucified along with Jesus, one on each side of Him. As they hung there, struggling to breath and slowly dying, one of the thieves mocked Him saying: 'If You are the Christ, save yourself and us!' The other, after living a life of crime and with only minutes left, humbly asked Jesus to remember him. Jesus did not have to 'pray' about it, but immediately told him: 'Today you will be with Me in paradise.'

    Many times life slips by so very quickly and we mean to make things right, but then time marches on. Eventually, we become caught in a trap, and we begin to feel that it is too late. We think that there has just been too much water under the bridge, too many wrongs to be made right.

    Could God really forgive us for a lifetime of sin, mistakes, and unbelief? Would God really give us a fresh start after all that we have done, even if we had only moments left in our life? Yes, absolutely! Isaiah told us: 'Come now, and let us reason together,' says Yahweh: 'Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool' (Isaiah 1:18).

    Jesus will completely wash you as white as snow with His own blood that He shed for you. If you just humbly ask, even if you had only minutes left, and have lived a life full of wickedness, He will still forgive you. All of heaven rejoices when someone who is lost turns to God (Luke 15:7).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I turn to You today. Guide me into all that You have for me. Forgive me of my sins, draw my heart to You, and lead me into an overcoming life on this earth, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I've read this passage, and heard it preached a thousand times. But this morning, it's almost as if God has breathed new life into it and I can see it with new perspective. This thing is POWERFUL!!! GLORY TO GOD - a God who would take an ENTIRE lifetime of sin and wash it away just because He loves us THAT much that He would rather forgive than be without us for eternity!!! Oh the tears that are flowing as I text these words! God is AH-MAY-ZING!!! I can hardly count on one hand the people who would forgive just a few trespasses. But here we have a GREAT and MIGHTY and LOVING and FAITHFUL God who will forgive them ALL! If we never receive another thing from Him, that in itself is enough! MORE than enough!!! Somebody come on and give God a praise! A great praise!!! He's so worthy today!!! Hallelujah!!! Bless Your Mighty Name, O King of ALL Kings! Thank You for Your mighty love!!!!!

Beutiful!! Well said and I am touched by your words, Stacie. Amen! I pray when my time comes that I am as white as snow. If I think I sin as i'm always rhinking I repent all the time. Then pray I'm sorry and why I think I sinned. I just want to keep moving the way that God would want me to so I will keep always thinking what would Jesus, do? Amen <3

Oh what love our Lord has for us, it is simply beyond human understanding!!!

Praise the Lord for His everlasting love and faithfulness, willing to forgive even in the last few moments, even when we are already in the process of dying ... Just as He forgave the thief on the cross! Whata mighty Lord we serve!!!
