Ten Reasons to Fall in Love with Jesus: Reason #6

Welcome back to Nancy Rue's series of guest posts on Ten Reasons to Fall in Love with Jesus! If you've missed the previous days, you can catch up here. Now here's Nancy Rue with today's Reason #6:

Hey, , Mothers of Mini-Women! I have been loving being a guest blogger this Valentine’s week with Mocha with Linda for letting me be part of her blog (and basically take over!). Can’t tell you how much I appreciate ALL of you moms who are reading this. You are the most important influence in your tween daughter’s life. I hope you’ll share this with her:

For the mini-women:
Like most M-W’s, you’re probably way aware that the Valentine’s Day season is here, and you probably either love the cards, the candy, the frills – or you can’t wait for the thing to be over because it makes you so painfully aware of who DOESN’T like you! One being DOES like you. He loves you, in fact. He’s just waiting for YOU to fall in love with HIM. Why would you? In ten different posts, each one giving you a peek at a feature from the FaithGirlz Bible, we’re giving you a Reason To Fall In Love With JESUS. Here’s the sixth one.

Reason #6: Because Jesus forgives your sins. I think we’ve all had the experience of messing up, asking for forgiveness, being told, “It’s okay” – but then it never is, at least not the way it was before. Jesus doesn’t work that way. When you go to him and say, “I really made a mess out of that whole thing and I’m sorry and I want to be better than that,” forgiveness is a given and the entire situation is forgotten. Jesus loves you exactly the same way he did before you managed to tangle everything up. Maybe even more, because you went to him. That’s what he’s there for.
