“Jesus the risen Christ is with us this moment. Right here, right now loves you and accepts you just as you are.
You do not have to change to get his love. You do not have to give up your sin. You do not have to have a conversion experience. Obviously, Jesus wants you to change and yes he wants you to give up your sin and your selfishness… be converted and live, experience the freedom of the children of God but you don’t have to do that to get his love and acceptance. You have that already, before you decide to change and whether you decide to change or not.
Do you believe this?”
(part of a talk that I was watching given by Brennan Manning)
How absolutely scarily beautiful is that?!!
