(Part 2 of 2)
Yes, God knows us and loves us just as we are. Amen!
Yes, God sent Jesus to die for us while and when we are steeped in sin. Sins of our past, present, and future. In our messiest states.
BUT, He doesn’t want us to stay there. He desires for this act of grace and mercy to be transformational in our lives; to change us. Not because we want to earn His love or forgiveness, but because we ALREADY received it.
