At one time you all had your backs turned to God...giving him trouble every chance you got. But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God's side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence. ~Colossians 1:21~

My Child,

>Can you look back on a time when your heart was far from me--a time when rebellion was a way of life--when loving me and following me were the last things on your mind? Every law-breaking choice you made then could have had eternal consequences.

But before you could even keep your appointment in the courtroom, before the judge could ever hear your case, someone stepped between you and the justice you deserved. When Jesus died, he took the consequences for your lawlessness on himself. He said, "I'll take the rap." When He rose again, he made a way for you, an outlaw, to step out of that lifestyle and come home to me.

The One Who Welcomes You,

>God
