Jesus is Everything...
He is Sovereign.
He is Gentle.
He is Love.
He is Beyond Our Comprehension.
He is Everything.
Come to Him as you are.
He loves you... All of you.
And He will never change His mind about you.
The book Erin referenced is Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund.
She quoted from John Bunyan's book, Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ.
Here is the quote...
"No, wait" - we say, cautiously approaching Jesus - "You don't understand. I've really messed up, in all kinds of ways."
I know, He responds.
"You know most of it, sure. Certainly more than what others see. But there's perversity down inside me that is hidden from everyone."
I know it all.
"Well - the thing is, it isn't just my past. It's my present too."
"But I don't know if I can break free of this any time soon."
That's the only kind of person I'm here to help.
"The burden is heavy - and heavier all the time."
Than let Me carry it.
"It's too much to bear."
Not for Me.
"You don't get it. My offenses aren't directed toward others. They're against You."
Then I am the one most suited to forgive them.
"But the more of the ugliness in me you discover, the sooner you'll get fed up with me."
Whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
~ John Bunyan
