God loves you, every part of you. 

You have dreams and longings deep in your heart. 

  • He created your heart with all your dreams and desires and He loves your heart.

But doesn’t the Bible say:

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? Jeremiah 17:9 (NLT) 

It is true that you and I were born into a spiritually and morally damaged world. 

  • As we grow older, we realise how our parents are full of faults. 
    • If we are honest, we can see that we are no different, wanting a better life but so often disappointing ourselves and others.

But God made your heart, your hunger for love and truth, your desire for the goodness which always seems to be beyond you.

A man in Los Angeles owned a sex shop selling pornography.
A Christian wanted to help him make peace with God but it was no use telling the man he was a sinner. 

But God gave the Christian man a revelation. 

  • This man had a divine gift of comforting people. 

(He was using it the wrong way, selling people the false comfort of sexual illusions.)

When the man saw himself through the eyes of God’s creative love, something changed inside him and he received the love and forgiveness of God. 

He began a new life with Jesus that day.

God loves your heart. He knows your longings and frustrations. 
The past, present and future are like an open book to Him. He created time itself.

Before the beginning of the world He saw you and He looked into your troubled soul ages before you were born.

  • He has a wonderful plan for your life. 
  • Ask Jesus to come to you and transform you from the inside.

When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same any more. A new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (TLB) 

Many people consider themselves to be Christians but they don’t know Jesus. 

True Christianity is knowing God personally and willingly allowing Him to transform your life fromt the inside.

For God took the sinless Christ and poured into him our sins. Then, in exchange, he poured God’s goodness into us! 2 Corinthians 5:21 (TLB) 

  • God wants to do all of this for you and then to take you on a wonderful journey through a new life that never ends. 
  • It all starts with a supernatural personal encounter with Jesus the Son of God. 
  • He is here with you now. 
  • He died but He returned to life and His love now fills the universe.

“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Revelation 3:20 (NLT) 

A Muslim woman in Iran was watching a Christian TV programme and she heard this message.
  • She  heard a knock at her door and when she answered, she saw Jesus standing there, a glorious man in a shining white robe. 
She invited Him inside and offered Him some food. Salvation came to her life that night. 

Whether or not you see Jesus with your natural eyes makes no difference to the spiritual reality of His presence and His love for you.

When Jesus offered His life on the cross, He paid the penalty for our sins but He did not stay dead. As a real human man, Jesus sacrificed His life for us but as God He could not stay dead. 

God is eternal and His supernatural life is an unquenchable fire.

  • When Jesus returned to life, He appeared to His disciples. Thomas was not with them and would not believe the story. 

Then Thomas saw Jesus and He believed.

Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!" Then Jesus told him, 

  • "Because you have seen me, you have believed; 
  • blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." John 20:28-29 (NIV)
