We all make mistakes and loads of bad choices as we walk through this life. I think it would be overwhelming If we could see all the “wrong things” we’ve done actually wrapped up in great big lumpy bags. Man! Talk about baggage! I can also imagine myself standing at the ticket counter of Heaven’s railway station, with all my bags piled up behind me. I can see the look on the ticket-taker’s face as he looks over my shoulder. I can hear him saying to me, “Sorry, you can’t get on the train because we don’t have enough room for all your garbage!” Fortunately, Jesus paid the price for all of our baggage. By dying on the cross, He has wiped it out of existence. We are new creations in Him. We are born again. He has washed us white as snow! If you’re feeling overwhelmed in life, buried by all of your baggage, remember that He can wipe your slate clean. He gives you the ability to start over! And when your time comes and you walk into Heaven’s railway station, you won’t need any bags and “you won’t need no ticket! You just get on board!”
My Though for your week: God never let’s your baggage get between you and His love. He knows all about you and He STILL loves you.
