“Then, he tells you that you must ‘sneak up behind’ Jesus and ask for forgiveness, because Jesus would never want to be associated with a woman as dirty as you.” – Carol Davis – Absolute Boundless Abandon, The Encouragement Cafe Extreme Team Bible Study
WOW! What a powerful statement? Such a bold face lie, yet one that holds so much truth!
Satan is forever trying to convince us that Jesus doesn’t need us … and guess what … he is right! Jesus doesn’t need us … BUT He does want us. Completely dirty and full of shame. Beaten and broken. Just as we are. That’s how Jesus wants us.
“Jesus did not come and die on a cross for those who have it all together. He came to put back together those of us who are falling apart.” – Carol Davis
Why do we try to clean ourselves up before we come to Him, especially when it’s only through Him that we will ever be completely clean … without spot or blemish! The only way we will ever be allowed into the presence of the Father is through a cleansing only Jesus can provide.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6
Have you been washed in the blood? It’s not too late …
