Trust Me

Do you believe I am the Son of God?

And do you believe that I died for all men and women and that I rose from the dead?

I have not put you in charge of redeeming them.

I have already done that.

Nor do you have the power to change their hearts;

only my Holy Spirit searches and knows the deepest hearts of men and women, and only He can heal their deepest wounds.

Your task is to love, to forgive, to pray for them and to turn them over to Me. 

Come closer to me yourself, and I will do the rest.

TRUST ME!
