Are you filling the void?Sue Afutu
God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:17
I once read a chilling account of a 15- year- old who took her own life. In her letter to her parents, written just before she committed suicide, she spoke of how she longed for her parents love instead of the money they showered on her. As a result of her sense of loneliness, she gave in to the sexual advances made by an uncle who lived with them at home and he sexually abused her.
Later, when her grades started falling, her parents got her a tutor at home. This was after her uncle had left. In order to fill the void created by her uncle, she started a sexual relationship with this teacher. Talk about a mess . . .
The love of God is real; it is tangible. It is the only thing that can fill a void in a person’s heart. Truly parents must love their children, friends should care for each other, spouses must love each other but until we accept God’s love for us, we would still feel empty on the inside.
God loved you so much that He sent His son to die for you. God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved. John 3: 16-18
No matter what you have done, no matter how far you have gone, come just as you are to God. He’s waiting to receive you with open hands. There’s no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. He who believes in the son is not condemned.
