Just As I Am

Just as you are, you can come to Christ Jesus. He accepts you just the way you are, but never leaves you that way.

God loves you to much to leave you the way you are. Yes! The God that created you wants to transform your life, into the life He created you for, to commune with Him.

The first step in coming is, coming with all that you are and have, no matter how messed up you feel your life is, or how important or unimportant you feel you are. You can come to Christ Jesus, {who we refer to as Our Lord and Our Friend}, to become your Lord and Your Friend at anytime.

The second step is to acknowledge, that there is nothing that you have done, that deserves, that you come. It is by God’s Grace {God’s unmerited favor}, we are allowed to come.

God’s grace paid the price for all of us to come, our sins {wrongdoing against God’s ways} had separated all of us from His Transforming Love, but now through the Cross, the price of separation has been paid by Christ Jesus.

Just as I was, I made that decision to come 45 years ago. I can tell you, I haven’t been a model citizen all of that time, but He never left me or forsook me in all that time. I think He has been patient with me most of the time. {It doesn’t  take that long, He begins to His transformation the moment you step forward, that is how long I have been a Christian.}

My life was changed to the place, where I find my self now, understanding Him more, loving Him more, sharing and serving  Him more. I can truly say I am now at a place where, I know that I know, Christ Jesus as My Lord and My Friend.

I still recall the Hymn I walk forward to as I responded “Just as I  Am”

Here is that hymn, read it , reflect and enjoy it and if you are not a Christian yet, you too can come just as you are.

V1 Just as I am – without one plea,

But that thy blood was shed for me,

And that Thou bidd’st me come to thee.

O Lamb of God I come!,

V2 Just as I am – poor, wretched, blind,

Sight, riches, healing of the mind;

Yea! all I need, in Thee to find,

O Lamb of God< I come.

V3 Just as I am – Thou wilt receive, ‘

Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve:

Because thy promise I believe,

Oh Lamb of God, I come!

V4 Just as I am- Thy love unknown

Has broken down barrier down;

Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,

Oh Lamb of God I come!

Our Lord and Our Friend is waiting, with an open invitation, that greatest journey any one can take is coming to Christ Jesus.

We have a prayer that you can say, in our Witnessing Tools in the top left hand corner of our page, if you do take the time to say that prayer please let us know and we will only to willing to help you in your questions, or point you to someone near you.

God Bless.
