Outcast

 

Are you an orphan? You did you not grow up in a normal family – perhaps adoptive parents brought you up? Maybe you were an unwanted child, and you grew up with a sense of being unwanted?  Perhaps a single parent brought you up and your other parent had no interest in you? Perhaps you suffered abuse at your parents’ hands because they didn’t want you? You feel like your life is pointless, worthless and without any joy as you feel like an outcast?

 

"6  What is the price of five sparrows - two copper coins?  Yet God does not forget a single one of them.

7  And the very hairs on your head are all numbered.  So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows." Luke 12:6-7 [New Living Translation]

God knew you before you were born:
"13  You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.
14  Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  Your workmanship is marvelous - how well I know it.
15  You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16  You saw me before I was born.  Every day of my life was recorded in your book.  every moment was laid out before a single day had passed." Psalm 139:13-16 [New Living Translation]
 
"1  Listen to me, all you in distant lands!  Pay attention, you who are far away!  The Lord called me before my birth; from within the womb he called me by name." Isaiah 49:1 [New Living Translation]

God wants to be present in your life, throughout your life:
Jesus promised that He (Jesus) and God the Father will make their home with whoever loves Jesus and obeys his teachings: "Jesus answered and said to him, 'If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.' " John 14:23 [New King James Version]

------------

God has a specific plan for your life.  That plan can only come to fruition if you accept Jesus Christ into your life:
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 [Amplified Bible]
 
God not only knew you before you were born, but He loved you so much that He not only sent His only Son to die so that we may have an eternal life, but He destined you to be like Jesus Christ, so that He (God) can glorify you!
“29  For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and  loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.
30  And those whom He thus foreordained, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified (acquitted, made righteous, putting them into right standing with Himself). And those whom He justified, He also glorified [raising them to a heavenly dignity and condition or state of being].”  Romans 8:29-30 [Amplified Bible]

------------

Do you realize how valuable you are to God?  Do not allow your sense of self-worth to be determined by the circumstances and people around you.  "Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has become a child of God.  And everyone who loves the Father loves his children, too."  1 John 5:1 [New Living Translation] "Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close."  Psalm 27:10 [New Living Translation] If you accept Christ into your life, you are born again into God's family.  There is no child of God that is an outcast!

Accept Jesus Christ into your life and experience God's love for you.

How Do You Receive Christ into Your Life?

 

If you would like to receive the gift of salvation that God has for you today, make a decision in your own heart that you want to be forgiven of your sins and that you wish to turn your back on a sinful life. Believe in the Kingdom of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ [Mark 1:15]. The Bible says if you confess with your mouth (i.e. actually say it) that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, you will receive salvation [Romans 10:9-10]. Salvation is open to any human being who calls upon the name of the Lord [Romans 10:12-13].
 

If you want to get saved right now:

first silently read the text in the paragraph below and make sure you understand it. It is a confession prayer you can use to get born again this very moment.

If in your heart you agree with the content of the statement below then,

read it again, but this time say it with your mouth out loud as you read it:

 

"Dear Lord Jesus, I repent of my sinful past.  I thank you with all my heart that You bore my sins and died for me. Wash my sins away with Your precious Blood. I believe that You rose from the dead so that I may have an everlasting life. I confess that You are Lord and my only Saviour.  From now on I am Yours and I will follow You.  Lead me through the Holy Spirit.  Thank you for a brand new life.  I am born again.  Amen."
