What are you living for? Your paycheck, your spouse, your kids, the next high, or maybe your job or business. Or are you living for Christ? What defines you…Jesus or something or someone else in the world?

Ever made mistakes you REALLY wish you could take back? Welcome to the club! Everyone has done things that they wish could be changed or taken back. Maybe your life is on the wrong track right now even as you are reading this. Friend it is NEVER too late to change the course of your life!

No matter what you have done, no matter who you are right now as a person…or how you view yourself when you look in the mirror, or reflect upon your private thoughts…things CAN change. You have not done anything that cannot be changed. Your past actions obviously cannot be undone, but that does not mean that you cannot seek to change and be a better person.

Regardless of what you have done, you can be forgiven and you can change. The key here is that you are NOT the judge of what you have done…Jesus Christ is! Have you lied, stolen, gossiped, hurt people, killed someone, been or are addicted to drugs and or alcohol, slept with half the city, been in trouble all your life? These are all sins and punishable by death so says God. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

So even though your sin is punishable by death…if you confess to Jesus what you have done, are truly sorry for these things you have done wrong, then Christ will forgive you, and grant you eternal life with Him! God will enable you to change! If you lay it all before His feet, Jesus will help you. In Jesus Christ you too can have a new life…regardless of what you have done. Jesus will forgive you if you are truly sorry and desire to turn from your ways and embrace His ways. Of course this means that you must do more than simply pray a prayer…a prayer without a change in your life is meaningless.

It is not the fact that you have done wrong, that you have sinned that matters…we ALL sin! Don’t misunderstand me, sin is serious…but it is what you choose to do with those sins that matters. Are you going to continue sinning and living a life you know deep inside is wrong, or are you going to confess it to Jesus and receive forgiveness? It’s your choice…

Acknowledge that you are a sinner, ask God to forgive you your sins. Believe that Christ’s death on the cross is enough to pay for your sins…trust in Jesus for your eternal life, not yourself or your good works. Believe that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day and is in heaven even now with the Father. Commit to following Jesus and His plan for your life.

Regardless of what you have done, you can be forgiven and you can change. Accept Christ today…

    Amen brother! Preach it, spread the Word. Let’s bring the lost to Christ, and bring back the prodigals. I couldn’t have said it better. God Bless Greg!

      Thank you Gordon! I was a prodigal as well so this is near and dear to my heart. I want ALL to see that no matter WHAT they have done…they can be forgiven in Christ!
