Do you know Jesus as your friend? Jesus said, “Anyone who comes to me I will never reject” (John 6:37). He is the friend of the person who has given up. If you have given up, have faith that he will never give up on you. It wasn’t “love at first sight” with him. He chose to love you - before you were born. All you have to do is ask. That’s all. “Dear Jesus, come into my life, give me strength, and help me to forgive myself. I ask for your forgiveness and that you would ‘Remove my sins from me as far as the east is from the west’” (Psalm 103:12).

Crimson in White is a poem about keeping your mind on the power of the cross and what God did for you. For God so loved _____ (put your name in the blank), that he gave his one & only Son, that if ___ believes in him, they will not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16

You might have seen a flier like this on the Colorado State University Campus. If you checked out this poem (Crimson in White) I hope it encouraged you to be strong and to think in a way that is not self-destructive emotionally or physically.

After someone close to us dies, no matter what the cause, it is sometimes easy to blame yourself and to say “If only...”

Please think about the words in that poem. Think about the power of the cross.

The power of the cross gets us through life victoriously. The reason is simple. All of our regrets were nailed to that cross. Jesus gave up his life so we could live. He carried our sorrows. He carried our regrets. He took the punishment for all the sins of the world.

If you are living in regret, think about this: “There is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1
