Titus 3:3-7 says: “For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to His own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (ESV) What you were before Christ took hold of you, whether horrible or remarkable, marvelous or mundane, famous or foolish, means little in comparison to what Christ wants for you now. Your history means far less than your destiny. Jesus did not shed His blood, die in your place, to help you stay in your sins and remain as you were; He shed His blood, died in your place, to pay for your sins, to deliver you from them, to make you His own, and all that forevermore. If this has happened for you, rejoice and carry on with joy. If this hasn’t happened, God wants to make it happen. Why resist such an awesome, merciful, and loving God?! Receive Him who is calling you to Himself…
