The best news you can receive today

THE best news that you and I can receive today is that God doesn't care.

He doesn't care who or what we have done. He doesn't care about our class, our creed or our colour. He just doesn't care because he knows that none of these things can stop us from coming into a relationship with Him through His son Jesus Christ.


Many of us have been told that we won't amount to anything in life because of a choice or a mistake we have made which caused us to grow up with an 'I am as thick as two short planks' or 'you're about as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike' mentality.

The thing I love about God is He looks beyond the outward, He looks beyond our scarred emotions deep into out hearts and He sees the real you and me that he created to have significance in life.


He designed us for purpose and destiny to be fulfilled and live a life that is relevant, radical and righteous. How cool is that?


Jesus made a statement in John 10 v 10 and in the words of a well known comedian 'It's a cracker'. It says this: 'I have come that you might have life that is superabundant in quantity and superior in quality.'

Now if Jesus died on the cross to give us life why should we be settling for anything else?

Now there's a thought for the Week!
