It Only Takes a Minute...

Marriage is a commitment made in just a few moments. One minute, you're single, and the next, you've entered a lifelong union—pledging to weather life's storms together, for better or for worse.

Yet, inevitably, we stumble. We say or do something foolish, hurting our partner or straying from the vows we once made. But does a misstep mean the marriage is suddenly null and void? No. Despite our flaws, we remain bound together. It might require seeking forgiveness or extending it, but for most, the marriage endures.

This analogy struck a chord with me during a recent teaching, reminding me of how Jesus views us, flawed and sinful as we are. Imagine if only those who never sinned could enter heaven—its gates would stand empty. We all fall short every single day. Pastor Rick Warren once emphasized, "There is no one sin greater than another." Whether it's murder or gluttony, each transgression is significant in its own right. It's a daunting realization—overeating equated with murder? Coveting likened to taking a life? Yet, that's the truth.

But amidst this reality, there is good news. You might wonder, "How "good" must one be to gain entry into heaven?" The answer lies not in our deeds—good or bad—but in Jesus, who paid the ultimate price for our sins. Simply ask for forgiveness, invite Jesus into your life as your savior, FIRE yourself as the "CEO" of your life, and turn it over to God. We're all sinners. And the beauty of it all? When we stumble again—tomorrow, an hour from now—He doesn't cast us aside. Just as a spouse doesn't abandon us after the first argument, Jesus remains steadfast. A personal relationship with Christ begins now—it's not about religion but acceptance of our savior, granting us peace. It only takes a minute to turn your life over to Christ. You can do it now; just say, "Lord, forgive me, I invite you to be my Savior." It's that simple, and it only takes a minute.

I'm eager to share if you're curious about my journey with Christ and how it's transformed my life. I am, undeniably, a sinner—but I am forgiven.

You can start by reading a simple daily devotional that can provide insight and wisdom, which I would love to send you. No obligation, but it may be the avenue you need to find the peace you are longing for.

After all, It only takes a minute...
