God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Roman 5:8
I woke up with a jolt. It was way too light in my bedroom. I had mistakenly set the alarm on my cell phone for PM instead of AM and it was later than I thought. Rushing around to get dressed and out the door I caught a quick glance in the mirror. Oh, I can’t go like this! I thought. I’m a mess!
I have a good, good Father Who loves me even when I don’t have it all together. He doesn’t ask me to get it right, clean up my life, memorize the Bible, or make amends for all my wrongs before coming to Him. The words of “America’s pastor,” Billy Graham, will echo into eternity God’s invitation to us … “Come now … don’t delay … He’s waiting for you.”
With arms wide open, He calls me to come “just as I am.”
