I have lost love, opportunity and character, because I doubted. I doubted myself, I doubted others, I doubted the 'signs', I doubted the 'warnings', I doubted truth and wisdom... There is one 'doubt' that literally costs us everything...
If you doubt how much God loves you, you can - and will - lose everything. Why? Because you will not, therefore, go to him.
Paul prays for us, asking that we would know 'how long and wide, deep and long is the love of Christ...' He goes on to ask that we would 'know this love that surpasses knowledge.' Why? So that we would be 'filled with the full measure of God.' (Eph 3:14-21)
If we do not accept the love of God towards us, through the invitation of Christ, we will miss God's gift of forgiveness and eternal life. What is the 'invitation' of Jesus Christ? It is this: that we turn from our sin, and follow Jesus.
Have you repented of your sin this day, and put your faith in Jesus Christ?
