If you have AIDS, we want to assure you of God’s great love for you. God understands your needs whether you are young or old, or your problems are large or small.
In Hebrews 4:15-16 we have the wonderful promise that Jesus, who is God incarnate, is “touched with the feeling of our infirmities” and that we can “therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Jesus lived on earth and suffered both physical and emotional pain. He understands us.
Jesus himself explained that, “the thief’s (Satan’s) purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness” (John 10:10, TLB). Jesus wants to be your Friend and constant Companion even though others may forsake you. Not only that, He offers eternal life and a place in heaven. We have God’s acceptance of us and His commitment to us through our faith in Christ who said, “Whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37b). When everything else in life is stripped away, God reveals His love and care through His Son Jesus Christ.
If you have never done so, open the door of your heart to Jesus Christ. You can do that by a simple prayer of repentance and faith right now. Jesus says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). Let Christ fill that empty space in your life, and then make it your goal to follow Him the rest of your life.
Remember that God “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20, NKJV). Romans 8:34 tells how Jesus is at the right hand of God praying for us, and verses 35-39 tell how nothing can separate us from God’s love.
