Jesus Turns It Around! Part Two
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
We feel so unworthy of God’s love that we feel like there is no hope for us. We may think that any other option would be better than being saved by Jesus. But this is not true. There is none too bad for Jesus to save or forgive. All of us have sinned and need to be forgiven. The Bible tells us that through faith in Jesus Christ, we can be saved from our sins (Ephesians 2:8-10).
There is none too bad for Jesus to save. He saved the thief on the cross, and he can save anyone. I heard a story of a young man born to a teenage mother, and his father was in and out of jail. The man’s grandparents raised him, and he was always in trouble as a kid. When he was about 15 years old, he stole a car. He was arrested and sent to jail. While in jail, he heard a preacher talk about Jesus Christ. The man accepted Jesus as his savior, and when he got out of jail, he decided to turn his life around. He has now been saved by Jesus Christ and has faith in Him for good.
John 3:16 says, “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.”
That is amazing! Jesus loves us so much that He was willing to die for us even though we are sinners. And because Jesus died for us, we can be forgiven and have eternal life. Jesus is our hope and our salvation. If we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we will be forgiven and have eternal life. There is no greater gift than that! So, if you are feeling unworthy or too bad for Jesus to save or forgive, don’t fret. He loves you and wants to forgive you. Just repent of your sins and ask Him to come into your heart. Then, you will not regret it!
There is none too bad for Jesus to save or forgive. This is good news for all of us because we all make mistakes. No matter how bad we think we are, Jesus will save us. So, if you have ever done anything you’re not proud of, or if you have ever felt like you’re too bad for God to forgive, don’t give up! Instead, cry out to Jesus, and He will turn everything around for your good. Just trust Him and let Him heal your heart and transform your life. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
1. Thank you, Jesus, for your compassion in counting me worthy.
