"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God" (1 Peter 3:18). "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" (Ephesians 1:7).
There cannot be forgiveness of sin without Jesus shedding his blood for our sin. 1 Peter writes, "Christ died for us to bring us to God." Paul writes, "In him, we are redeemed" - through his blood where there is forgiveness of sin. The rejection, sometimes painful to see, is of Jesus, not me. It breaks my heart, but I won't stop praying for C as she walked back into the house probably bothered. I pray that one small seed would enter her heart to reflect the visit we had and the small amount of gospel that was shared. I pray that she would see the need for Jesus in her life.
