Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.
It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you’ve been, no one is too far gone for Jesus.
I think that statement’s important enough that it’s worth repeating: No one is too far gone for Jesus. No one! And there’s no better evidence of this than the woman Jesus met at the well.
When Jesus meets this woman she has been used and abused. She has been divorced five times and is living with her boyfriend. She’s a mess! At least, she was seen as a mess to the people around her. Even so, Christ reached out to her with the living water of eternal life. And her life was transformed instantly and eternally!
This woman…a woman who had been ravaged by regrets and failures and brokenness…this wasted, burned out woman…was made brand new because of the power of Jesus Christ which began to change her! She wasn’t too far gone for the Lord Jesus!
And the application in your life and my life is clear. No one around us…no matter how wasted, burned out, or strung out they may seem…is too far gone for Jesus Christ.
And you know what else? Neither are you!
In John 4:13, Jesus says, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Jesus says whoever drinks of the water that He gives will have eternal life! Like I said before, it doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you’ve been. None of us is ever too far gone for Jesus Christ.
It’s my prayer that no matter what your past may hold, you will turn to God today!
no one on this earth is too far gone for jesus
