Running after Me
Steal, kill and destroy. That’s satan’s job and he’s good at it! He finds our weaknesses and throws them in our face every chance he gets. He is relentless and will stop at nothing to be sure we don’t find our way (or way back) to Jesus. He whispers to us that we aren’t good enough, we aren’t worthy of spending eternity with our Lord in heaven. Don’t believe the father of lies!
To say or think you are too bad, too far gone to be forgiven is insulting to Jesus … He suffered and died on the Cross to atone for ALL of our sin! Colossians 2:13-14 – “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;” Everyone’s sin. The sin debt has been paid! You only need to accept His gift of salvation to be set free! John 8:36 - “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Christ-follower, remember this truth!
This is the story of a runaway with no way home and no way out. I threw the best of me away; I had my chance, it's too late now. Too far gone and too ashamed to think that You'd still know my name, But Love refused to let my story end that way. You didn't wait for me to find my way to You; I couldn't cross that distance even if I wanted to. You came running after me when anybody else would've turned and left me at my worst. Love moved first
Jesus loves you and will come running to you when everyone else turns and runs away. He will take us at our worst … His love moves first! 1John 4:19 - “We love him, because he first loved us.”
