After all I’ve done, can God really forgive and love me? – Mark Custalow – Mattaponi

Native American Christian Answers: Mark Custalow from the Mattaponi tribe in Virginia addresses the question, “After all I’ve done, can God really love and forgive me?”

There is not a box that we could build big enough to hold the love of God. The Bible says, “God is love, so He Himself is love, and He is limitless… beyond measure.”

Do you know that when the Roman soldiers who had taken nails and driven them in the hands, in the feet of our Savior, when they were at the foot of the cross, when He was hung there, dying for you and for me, they had before they hung Him there, they had beaten Him mercilessly. The Bible says you couldn’t even recognize that He was a human being and a man. You know what Jesus said from the cross, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

The Bible also says in Romans chapter 5, it describes the love of God and says, “You know, it’s easy for a person to love someone who’s lovely, someone who’s lovable, someone who will love them back.” Then it goes on and again in Romans chapter 5 and it says, “But God loved you and me when we were unlovely and we had nothing to give and couldn’t give anything back. He chose to love you and me even then in that condition.”

So friend, I don’t know what you’ve done. I don’t know what you’ve experienced in life. I’m sure you’ve done a lot of bad things because you and I, we’re all sinners and we all need a Savior. And it doesn’t matter how big of a sinner you are. What matters is how big our Savior is and He is God and His forgiveness is limitless. And He’ll forgive your sins and wash them as far away as the East is from the West and He remembers them no more and He leaves you clean, pure and white as snow, redeemed, set free. I’d love to see that for you.
