Almost finsihed. Finished with 31 Days of writing. It has stretched me. This month of free-writes. My perfectionist nature would like to revise. Edit. Take-back maybe somethings. Yet, it has taught me the value of saying the words right the first time.
We cannot just “almost” be certain things. We are called, as Christians, for more than almost. We are called to love. Love without conditions, because it was how we are loved. We cannot almost have joy. Or peace. Or long suffering. We are invited to put them on everyday. No ifs….ands….or buts…..
We are called to come. Not “almost” come……come to Him with all we have. Not partly. Not half-way. Our surrender and release are one in the same. As we come to our Savior. We lay down our hurt. We lay down our heart. We come.
We do not need to say, “I’m almost ready….to come to you, Jesus. Almost. Let me get somethings straight.”
No, He invites us to come now. He tells us He’s already forgiven. He’s already saved. It is finished. The work of salvation. It is not “almost finished.” It is DONE. Our Savior sits on the throne, with a hand stretched out to all who would receive His grace. For all those who would call on His name, He is ready to save.
Listen to the truth. Almost is not how salvation works. Almost is not how forgiveness works.
Just ALL. It is all finished. You come ALL as you are.
