You matter to God!

You matter! You matter to God. Not what you have or not what you do. Not your color or not your race. Not your education or not your excellence. Not your experience or not your skills. All these are nothing to God; but, YOU my friends! You matter to God.

Like a rebellious child, we all rejected God’s command and ignore his mercy. We all fall short of Gods grace. We became his enemies. But, even though he knows we don’t deserve it He sent a lamb (his son JESUS) to bear our sins and die for our sins. You may wonder, “Why he did that? Do I deserve it?” Absolutely No! But it is a soul-searching question. In fact, we don’t get what we deserve. But we get so much more. The love of God was visibly demonstrated in his son Jesus. He sent His own Son to die on a cross. A cross that was the most excruciating and painful death, which Jesus did not deserve, the death was meant to be ours. Why he did that? because He wants us not to be lost. He wants every one to be saved.

You may not matter to any one but you matter to God. You may think that you do not matter but you matter to God. I love what Howard Thurman; the great theologian once said, “With God, there are no nobodies.” That is absolutely true. You matter to God because He created you in his likeness and image. Yes, you are sinful, not perfect; messed up here and there … deserve judgment. But you see, when we sin we usually think God hates us and there is nothing we can do to amend the situation. Some of us have done serious things that we do not think God can ever forgive us. But that is not true! The scripture says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9). All you need to do is confess, repent and change your way, your life and your old thinking. All you need is having a changed heart and a renewed perspective through Jesus Christ.

Friend, you matter to God. He loves you so much. You matter not because you are a good person. You matter not because you deserve. You matter because he created YOU in his image and he doesn’t want you to be lost forever. God offered his son as an expression of just how much you matter to him. He offered his son, as a way to salvation just to show you how much he loves you. Don’t think you deserve it, but accept the invitation with humility and reverence. He loves you more than you can ever love yourself, or anyone else for that matter. He came and shed His precious blood to bear every infirmity, every fear and every lonely emotion that beckons you. He came so that your tears would be wiped away and has a right relationship with him, others and yourself. God does not coerce men and women. He does not manipulate His creation like objects; He deals with men and women as persons. Why? because we all matter to him. He wants you to know that. He desires to have fellowship with you. He invites you to his love and fellowship. Have you accepted his invitation?

“Here I am! says the Lord, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 Jesus Christ standing at the door of your heart. Invite Him in; He is waiting for you to receive Him into your heart and life. When you receive Christ into your life you become a child of God, “to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12

Accept God’s invitation today and receive his forgiveness that is only found in Jesus Christ. God loves you. He wants to bless your life and make it full and complete. And He wants to give you a life which will last forever, even after physical death. Accept his invitation today, because you personally matter to him.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
