Jesus Is Still Your Friend | Short Sermon Series
Regardless of your past or present, your weaknesses and failures, Jesus is still your friend.
It can be hard to believe sometimes, especially when we look at ourselves through our filter of failures, and we lose heart. How could God love someone like me? How could God ever use someone like me? Jesus looked past our sins and loved us anyway! His death and resurrection put sin in its place once and for all, and made a way to restore our relationship with God to what it’s meant to be.
Sometimes we try to perfect ourselves before God and think that God will love us more when we get our act together. But in truth, He will never love you more than He already does right now. He will never accept you more than He already does right now! Even in our daily struggle to fight against sin, remind yourself that Christ has already made us righteous and God loves us.
You are God’s focus. You are what He thinks about all day. You are what He’s obsessed over and won’t stop loving and wanting to spend time with you. You are His favourite. You are His friend :)
