He Called Me

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1 ESV)

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9 ESV)

I was listening to Glorious Day by Passion Conference. This is the first part:

“I was buried beneath my shame
Who could carry that kind of weight?
It was my tomb
‘Til I met You

I was breathing, but not alive
All my failures I tried to hide
It was my tomb
‘Til I met You

You called my name
Then I ran out of that grave
Out of the darkness
Into Your glorious day.”

That pretty much describes my life before I returned to my first love, God. I felt buried, unable to please anyone. But then God pulled me back in. Truthfully He had been pulling for several decades, but I ignored it. Then one day, at a very dark place in my life, I gave in to that pull. I went back to church after 28 years of not going.

After that, I don’t miss often.

I like Romans 8:1. There isn’t any condemnation in God. Repent, He forgives then forgets it. The devil doesn’t forget. He will keep bringing it up. Then I will repent again. But I don’t have to. It’s already been taken care of.

As I look back on my life between my years of serving God, it seems like the song says, “I was breathing but not alive.” So if that is how you feel today, repent. Come back to serving God whole heartily. He is waiting for you with open arms. He will wash your sins away.

Take a few minutes today to search your heart. Are you living for God or worldly pleasures?
