Wow! God’s comment truly touched my heart, I am pure to Him. If you asked Jesus to forgive your sins, you are pure. He doesn’t see the sin; He sees the blood of Christ. May this truth enter your heart to give you a true revelation of who you are, a child of God. The completed work of the cross and resurrection of Christ allowed this opportunity to anyone who believes. Everyone is capable to coming to the saving knowledge of Christ. God desires to send no one to Hell; it’s a personal choice of an individual. God’s passion for man has always been the salvation of our souls, so we can dwell with Him. Although our sinful state is very messy, God’s grace and mercy can make a sinner spotless.
The best visual illustration in scripture is found in Zechariah 3:1-8 of what transpires as we pray. All three parties are present before God: Joshua, Satan, and the Lord. As we stand before the Lord, Satan is ready to accuse us before God. Although Satan’s accusations are true, we are sinners. We are guilty of punishment before God but the justice of God prevails because of the blood of Christ, we are guiltless. Jesus stands in our defense and rebukes Satan and his charges. The One who chose us, redeemed us, and justified us completes the work.
Right now, someone is feeling guilty of their past sins and feeling unworthy of God’s love. You are not with hope, promise, or love. We are all sinners, there is no denying this. But although we were sinners, Christ still loved us enough to die for us. You are wanted by God. He is ready to do the work; it’s only if you are willing to come.
