Jesus did not come to condemn the
world. He came to save the lost. He will never refuse anyone who
comes to Him. Jesus said: “Come to Me, all who are weary and
heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29“Take My yoke upon
you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU
WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30“For My yoke is easy and My
burden is light.” Matthew 11:28,29. His invitation is for everyone.
Romans 10:13.
Jesus said: "All that the Father
gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will
certainly not cast out.” John 6:37. Jesus will never refuse anybody
who calls on Him or comes to Him.
It does not matter where you come from,
what you have done wrong, he will accept you. You might have been the
biggest sinner. If you come to Jesus and repent He will forgive you:
We read in Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason
the LORD,
your sins are as scarlet,
will be as white as snow;
they are red like crimson,
will be like wool.”
“If we confess our sins, He is
faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from
all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9.
Many people have at some stage accepted
Jesus but they went away from Him. They lived wicked godless lives
even though they knew the truth, They want to go back to Jesus but
they do not have the confidence. They think He will not accept them
back, That is not true. Jesus never changes. His love never changes.
He never leaves us. We are the ones that leave Him. He is waiting for
those believers who are in sin, to come back to Him, repent and obey
Him. He will never show anyone away.
I read for us the parable of the
prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32.
And He said, “A
man had two sons. 12“The younger of them said to his father,
‘Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.’ So he
divided his wealth between them. 13“And not many days later,
the younger son gathered everything together and went on a journey
into a distant country, and there he squandered his estate with loose
living. 14“Now when he had spent everything, a severe famine
occurred in that country, and he began to be impoverished. 15“So
he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country,
and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16“And he would
have gladly filled his stomach with the pods that the swine were
eating, and no one was giving anything to him. 17“But
when he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s
hired men have more than enough bread, but I am dying here with
hunger! 18‘I will get up and go to my father, and will say to
him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight; 19I
am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me as one of your
hired men.”’ 20“So he got up and came to his father. But
while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt
compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed
him. 21“And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned
against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called
your son.’ 22“But the father said to his slaves, ‘Quickly
bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand
and sandals on his feet; 23and bring the fattened calf, kill it,
and let us eat and celebrate; 24for this son of mine was dead
and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.’ And
they began to celebrate.
his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the
house, he heard music and dancing. 26“And he summoned one of
the servants and began inquiring what these things could
be. 27“And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and your
father has killed the fattened calf because he has received him back
safe and sound.’ 28“But he became angry and was not willing
to go in; and his father came out and began pleading with
him. 29“But he answered and said to his father, ‘Look! For
so many years I have been serving you and I have never neglected a
command of yours; and yet you have never given me a young
goat, so that I might celebrate with my friends; 30but when this
son of yours came, who has devoured your wealth with prostitutes, you
killed the fattened calf for him.’ 31“And he said to him,
‘Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is
yours. 32‘But we had to celebrate and rejoice, for this
brother of yours was dead and has begun to live,
and was lost and has been found.
Jesus is that loving
Father, and He will welcome you back like the prodigal son. Hopefully
the prodigal son has learned his lesson, not to go away from the
Father again.
Be blessed in Jesus Name.
