Where God does not look at the background of our lives. Maybe we come from different families, different skin colors, different colleges or schools.
However, are we aware that there is a great plan of God in our lives? Namely God’s Call.
It may be that in this life, we have many shortcomings and weaknesses. But God does not see it all. He has fallen in love with us and He wants to call us a covenant for many people and use us in our youth.
Therefore, whatever sins we have committed before, let’s come to God. Ask for earnest forgiveness from Him. He is a good God. His blood was shed to atone for our sins because He loved us all.
Let’s give your life to God from now on and let Him use your life to glorify His name
