Dear Doubting Thomas, You said you want to be a Christian, but you do not think you deserve God. You said you are so ashamed and regretful of your past. The truth is, my friend, that none of us deserve God or his salvation. We can never make up for the past. Yet, your sins have already been paid by Jesus when he died on the cross. If you accept him, your sins are completely washed away. You will be clean in the sight of God. Not only that, but he will fill you with his Holy Spirit so that you will have a guide to steer you away from sinful behavior in the future. Even if you mess up and sin more, those sins will also be washed away. Since your soul will be completely free of sin, you will be acceptable to God and reconciled as his child. He will welcome you into eternal life in his kingdom. All of this is completely free. None of us deserve it or earn our salvation. We simply accept God’s grace. Sincerely, Your Friend in Christ
P.S. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God….” (Ephesians 2:8)
