“Every Saint Has A Past And Every Sinner A Future”

It’s Easter Sunday morning. You aren’t really into religious stuff but you had thought about going to church today. But, you think about all the mistakes you’ve made. You think the crazy stuff you’ve done. Things you’ve done or said or thought and you think to yourself, “I’m a little embarrassed to go to church. I mean, I . have some kind of a past.”
You might even think, “I hope the roof doesn’t cave in if I go.”
No, I can tell you the roof won’t cave in. And, I can tell you that it doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past… Jesus Christ loves you… died for you and will forgive you. I heard one Preacher put it this way, “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.”
He is absolutely right. Those of us who are saved… we all have a past… We need to be careful that we don’t begin judging those who have made mistakes as well. We have been there unless we have forgotten that.
And, every sinner has a future. Jesus loves you… And will forgive you…The same power that brought Jesus from the grave is available to forgive anything you have ever done.
Have you had premarital sex… Jesus will forgive.
Have you had extramarital sex… Jesus will forgive.
Have you had an abortion…. Jesus will forgive.
Have you gone through a divorce…. Jesus will forgive..
Addicted to drugs or alcohol….. Jesus will forgive..
Broken the law…. Jesus will forgive.
Have wild and crazy thoughts…. Jesus will forgive.
And whatever else you want to throw in there… if you will confess your sins and ask Jesus to forgive… He will..
“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” So, you can be forgiven. Jesus Christ rose from the grave and has the power to forgive you of any and all sin. I encourage you to confess your sins today and ask Jesus for forgiveness. It can happen, if you will confess..
Get started on your future.
