May I tell you what my relationship with my Creator means to me?

The major benefit is that I have received unconditional forgiveness from my Creator. I am forgiven for all the wrong things I have done. I'm not carrying the weight of past mistakes. I can now live life without regrets.

It wasn't always like that. A few years ago it was quite different. In my gut I knew how I should be living. The harder I tried the more wrong choices I made. My moral debts just kept adding up. I worked hard to get some credit, but just kept accumulating debts. 

One day I read some wonderful news at work. A customer and left behind a booklet, like the one I've shown you. For the first time in my life I heard a life-transforming formula: three things I needed to know and just ONE thing I needed to do. The three things I needed to know: (1) my Creator loves me, (2) He knows that I have made wrong choices (3) Jesus died on the cross to take my punishment for all the things I would ever do wrong.

I saw that I had a choice. I could stumble ahead under an increasing load of guilt, or accept God's offer of unconditional forgiveness. I said out loud something like this, "Jesus, I need you. Thank you for dying to pay for all the wrong things I have done. Come into my life and show me how you want me to live."

Since then life has not been without its problems. I have made some poor choices and been hurt by the consequences of not always living the way my Creator wants me to live.

But today,I am excited because of the forgiveness I've received from my Creator. May I encourage you to accept your Creator's offer of unconditional forgiveness?
