I learned a while ago also that Jesus wasn't sent into the world to condemn the world, but that the world would be saved through him, and that no sin is great enough to bring before
God forgiveness is always there, and that Jesus is way, if you've ever seen the painting with
Jesus knocking on a door with no doornob on the outside of the door, it signifies that he's always there attempting to come into your heart as well as your life, but only you can let him in, that's why the doornob is on the inside of the house where it's your choice to let him in, get it? And this is my favorite it always keeps me going when times are tough:
I am the Good Shepherd, who is willing to die for the sheep, When the hired man, who is not a sheperd and does not own the sheep, sees a wolf coming, he leaves the sheep and runs away; so the wolf snatches the sheep and scatters them. The hired mam runs way because he is only a hired man and does not care for the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd
. As the Father knows me and I know the Father, in the same way I KNOW MY SHEEP AND THEY KNOW ME, AND I AM WILLING TO DIE FOR THEM, No one takes my life away from me,
I GIVE IT UP OUT OF MY OWN WILL, deep huh.
