“…if only I had let God hold me when I wuz a younger man, I never would’uv done the things to y’all that I done.” – These were Dad’s words ten years ago today on October 18, 2002. Dad, at 73 years old after causing great pain and shame to our whole family through horrendous emotional, sexual and physical abuse, finally submitted his life to Jesus Christ as his Savior.
And I am CONVINCED! that Jesus did not have to spill one more drop of blood for Dad than He did for me.
Today I am celebrating the incomprehensible Love of our merciful God who chose to offer His own Life as the Only Sufficient Sacrifice so that we could be “rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” – Colossians 1:13-14
This LOVE, this FORGIVENESS is for ALL. Because Jesus gave HIS ALL for ALL of us.
If you already have my book “CONVINCED!,” you can re-read chapter 12 – “Behold, I am making all things new!” – and celebrate God’s Merciful Life-Renewing Love with me! If you don’t: Order your own copy of “CONVINCED!” today at www.createspace.com/3404109!!!
In great celebration and humbled thanks for the LOVE of our Lord Jesus Christ – Sylane
