There was a young man who came from a Christian family. Despite the upbringing, he deliberately walked away from church for 22 years. During those years, to say that he has been around the block, and then some, would be an understatement.

Yet despite the alcohol and other vices, Jesus still made sure that he was sober enough to hold down a job and move up in life. Even though he lived like he wanted to become a bankrupt, Jesus always provided enough manna for the day so that he could always keep his head above water.

Today, by the grace of Jesus and His unchanging, unceasing persistence to bring him back into His fold, the young man is saved, happily married, healthy in mind, body and soul and serving in the ministry of His calling.

This young man is very much like the apostle Peter, who despite denying that he knew Jesus three times, still had Jesus say to him,

“But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.” Luke 22:32

What hope Jesus brings to us who constantly fail him. Not only does Jesus not give up on the young man or the apostle Peter, He lifts them up after saving them and uses them for His purpose and the glory of His kingdom.

Beloved child of God, Jesus has said,

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:16-17

Jesus did not come into the world to condemn but to save. He, therefore, does not look at you as a burden, but as the precious jewel He came to redeem.

Whatever you have done, and whatever you are going through, Jesus has not given up on you. He stands at the door of your heart knocking. For He says,

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20

Beloved, Jesus still believes in you. Let Him in and let Him pour out His grace, mercy and love upon your life.
