Jesus Can Hear Your Thoughts And He Still Likes You

Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? (Matthew 9:4 NIV)

When I was a young christian, I would always wish that I was born at the time of Jesus so I could hangout with Him. "Wouldn't that be so cool to just chill with Him and talk to Him personally" and then when I read this verse, it made me think twice about that wish. If I would hangout with Jesus, what would He say about my thoughts? Wouldn't it be embarrassing for me to hear Jesus say what he said to the Pharisees? I know it would be... So I kinda went easy on that wish for a little bit.

But when I really thought about it, It dawned on me that I don't have to be born at the time of Jesus for Him to hear my thoughts! He can hear my thoughts right now! In fact He can hear my thoughts every moment of the day! He knew the times when I have entertained evil in my heart. He knows how impure my thoughts can be at times. He knows me fully today.

And amazingly, He still accepts me.
I am fully known yet I am fully accepted.

Jesus knows you. He hears your every thought - including the ones you don't want Him to hear. But I want you to know, our deeds and our thoughts are not what earned us God's love and acceptance in the first place and therefore are never gonna be what will take away God's Love and acceptance from us

What an amazing kindness God has for us...
The bible says it is that kindness that makes sure we don't use God's love as a license to sin more but instead brings change in the way we do things and also in the way we think.
