There are some things you catch and you can’t just help but share and hope someone will understand. Well, I will try to share this one in a just a few words:
Now, use all the imagination you’ve got.
Imagine all the mess that can characterize or has characterized your life so far (before now). The unworthiness and condemnation that shadows you when “good” people stand. Think of all the shameful and dissatisfying things you have been in…
Still hold on to that…
Now, imagine someone comes to you today and proposes: I will stand for you, give you my record, past, present and future; I am giving you my reputation both before God and man. Your past from today and the future that follows it as a reward I am discarding away. The honor and privileges that accompanies being me, I am giving those to you. Heaven stamps it and God has sealed this. God isn’t accepting this you, but with what I’m giving you, He is opening His arms to you
The deal: Simply accept it and live MY life for me.
What would you do with this proposal?
Give it some thought.
Do you know this is the proposal Jesus made on that Cross and is making to we all today?
I thought this today and remembered Colossians 1:27 – …Christ in you, the hope of glory.
The same law that says you will reap in the future what you sow yesterday/today; now Imagine it says I can get a glorious future despite my shameful and regrettable past. The secret is salvation: accepting the Great Proposal of Jesus Christ.
I have accepted the Christ life now, so I have the Christ-past, I have the Christ-present, I will have the Christ future.
You can too. Will you accept this proposal today?
Glory to God!
