God has always loved you
Let me encourage you today by telling you about the grace of our God.
God has been drawing you to Himself since the day you were born. Through life circumstances that include joy, love, family, even heartache and loss, God has been working to open your eyes to His grace. We are all broken, we all have sinned so when Jesus Christ offers life for “all” that is very good news for you and I. God loves you and has an amazing plan for your life.
He alone has the power to save you, to forgive you and to restore you to a right relationship with Him. Jesus Christ is why we are here and we are all longing for more of Him.
John 1:12-13 – But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God
