Love and forgiveness
Once when I was living a life of sin, I was walking alone in the night, listening to a song which was about the love of God. I looked up, towards the heaven and asked the LORD, “But, LORD, how could You love me, for I am such a sinner?” And the LORD replied, “Because no one else could love you now.” That was the turning point in my life. It was a struggle, but the LORD gave me grace to come out of the sinful life I was living.
Yes, there was a time in my life, no one could have loved me. I was such a mess. Even I could not live with myself. Every single day was a struggle. But, then the love of our Lord Jesus Christ opened my eyes. Even then, it was not easy. Old habits. Guilty conscience. It was not easy. But then, the LORD showed me the way out.
“Her sins, many as they are, are forgiven – because she has loved much.” – Luke 7:47 (AMP)
Whenever people ask me why I love the LORD so much, all I can tell them is that God has forgiven me so much, how can I not love Him? Let us love the LORD, for He has forgiven all our sins. Let us love Him more and more, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
2 Peter 3:9“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
