No-one Is Beyond Salvation

Sometimes it can be easy to think that salvation is for others but not for ourselves. In fact, no-one is beyond salvation.  Jesus came to Earth to die so that all could be saved.  Reading the Bible made it easy to see that all of us are equally valuable in God's eyes.  For example, consider the apostle Paul.  Previously called Saul, he used to persecute and kill Christians.  Then God spoke to him one day as he was walking along the road.  Imagine his shock! He converted to Christianity and spread the word of God far and wide over many lands.

If you are tempted to think that you are not 'good enough' for God, don't worry! Salvation is a turning over of ourselves to God, putting our (imperfect) selves into God's hands, just as we are here and now.  Think about it.  Paul, who used to kill Christians, was chosen by God as an instrument of spreading the news about Jesus. None of us are beyond salvation.  Remember, a church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.
