He's Knockinnnn

God's love has been made known to you and I and now He stands at the door and knocks.
It's up to every one of us to either pursue a personal relationship with God or else reject Him outright. I'm sure you agree with me I could never reject God. Just the thought makes my heart ache. The only barrier between us and God's love is our own freewill and Jesus Christ is the door"Jesus says, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'" John 14:6
Salvation is a free gift bought and paid for by the blood of Christ. There is no other way.

"Do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!" Galatians 2:21
You can't earn God's forgiveness through good works. How will doing the good works that we should have done all our life make up for the countless times you've failed? God's no fool. You can "use an abundance of soap, the stain of your guilt is still before Me…" Jeremiah 2:22.

A man once fell on his knees before Christ and begged, "If You are willing, You can make me clean." Christ, "filled with compassion" replied, "I am willing, be clean" Mark 1:40-41.

We too can fall on our knees and acknowledge God's only provision for our sins. We too can hear, "I am willing, be clean." Christ willingly took God's righteousness upon Himself so that you don't have to.
Whoever accepts His death upon the cross as payment for their sins will be reconciled to the God whom they've offended. "All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ…God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them…God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" 2 Corinthians 5:18-19.

Sweet Jesus, I know Your heart is good and that all things that produce fruit come from that very spot. I am on my knees this morning seeking Your heart and patiently waiting for You to pursue me. I acknowledge that You are all~~loving and all~~powerful, and that before You, the angels in heaven bow and the demons in the air flee. I am totally dependent on You, Lord Jesus, for the touch of Your hand on my shoulder and the whisper of Your voice in my ear. Without Your daily Presence I am incapable of making wise choices..
Thank You that no matter what the circumstance I might face today, You stand ready to guide and direct the outcome -- if I will only ask You. Humbly I seek Your Face and ask for an anointing of Your Holy Spirit as I begin my day, praying that all I do will bring honor and glory to You my King.
I know you Love me unconditionally and there is nothing I do that I know you won't forgive me for, But Lord I pray that I will walk your walk and talk your talk today and always. Thank you for Loving me, I Love YOU!

Amen and Amen. I agree with you. Without my Jesus I am nothing. Why people can't see that I don't understand. All we can do is pray that eyes will be opened to the mercies of God and they can see that Jesus died on the cross that we could live without sin and have life eternal. Time is running out. I truly believe we are living in the last days.
Thanks for sharing your heart,
