Come As You Are

In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an impure spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, “Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”

“Be quiet!” Jesus said sternly. “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.

Luke 4:33-35

This is what I love about God.

He isn't intimidated by your issues, your fears, your insecurities, your handicaps.

He isn't worried by your worries or scared of your messes.

He doesn't doubt when you doubt.

He isn't afraid of getting close to you.

He wants to be close to you.

But people forget this about God and try to convince themselves that they have to clean up, get right before they approach Him. And that is a lie.

You can come to Him as you are.

And then as you draw close to Him, the scars, the stains start to fade away.

Even the bruises and cuts you didn't realize you had go away in His presence.

Stop putting off your time with God for the right time, for the right circumstances, for the right you.

Meet Him in the now.

Meet Him as you are.

Come as you are and He will receive you just as you are.

He loves you. Come and be with Him.
