Compassion and Thankfulness
Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior?
When you ask the Father to forgive you of your sins, and you receive His Son Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life, He has incredible compassion upon you and forgives you for your sins. He is the definition of compassion, mercy and love.
The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
– Psalm 145:8 ESV
The Father provided His only Son through a virgin to be the sacrifice for you and everyone who believes in Him. Understanding the why behind this act can be challenging but having the faith to believe in Christ as the answer to a sinless and perfect eternal life is the acceptance of the Lord’s compassion and love for you.
The Father loves you so much that He was motivated to relieve your sinful suffering and bondage by giving His Son as the payment for your sins.
Suppose you were about to lose your house or vehicle because you could not make the monthly payments. The bank or mortgage company sent their final notification warning that a settlement or reconciliation was needed. How would you feel if a generous philanthropist offered to pay your entire debt? Would you agree that this person had compassion for you and was willing to pay the price for you to become free from financial bondage? Here’s the catch, you must accept the offer and willingness to make your payment.
Jesus offers the most incredible compassion to those He loves and provides the only way to an eternal, sinless life. Accepting Him as Lord and Savior of your life is accepting the only offer to pay your sinful debt.
Today’s One Thing
If you have yet to accept the payment for your sins by accepting Jesus as your Savior, accept the offer by asking for forgiveness and inviting Him into your life as Master. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, express your thankfulness to the Lord for His compassion, mercy and love.
