ENDLESS COMPASSION
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]

 

A lovely, 19-year-old nurse stopped me after a crusade service. Tearfully, she
sobbed out a pitiful confession: “Mr. Wilkerson, I’m a lesbian. I feel so dirty
and unclean. The church where I used to attend asked me to never return. The
minister said he couldn’t take a chance of my seducing others in his
congregation. I feel like suicide is my only way out. I live in total fear and
condemnation. Must I kill myself to find peace?”

She kept backing away from me as if she felt too unclean to be in my presence.
I asked her if she still loved Jesus. “Oh, yes,” she replied. “Every waking
hour, my heart cries out to Him. I love Christ with everything in me but I’m
bound by this terrible habit.”

How beautiful it was to see her face light up when I told her how much God
loved her, even in her struggles. I told her, “Don’t ever give yourself over to
your sin. God draws a line right where you are. Any momentum toward Him is
accounted as righteousness. Any move back across that line, away from Him, is
sin. If we draw near to Him, He draws near to us. Keep your spiritual momentum!
Keep loving Jesus even though you still do not have total victory. Accept His
daily forgiveness. Live one day at a time! Be convinced Jesus loves sinners so
He must love you, too!”

She smiled a smile of relief and said, “Mr. Wilkerson, you are the first
minister who ever offered me a ray of hope. Deep in my heart I know He still
loves me and I know He will give me deliverance from this bondage. But I have
been so condemned by everybody. Thanks for your message of hope and love.”

Reader of this message, are you living under condemnation? Have you sinned
against the Lord? Have you grieved the Holy Spirit in your life? Are you waging
a losing battle with an overpowering temptation?

All you need to do is search God’s Word and you will discover a God of mercy,
love and endless compassion. David said, “If thou, Lord, shouldest mark
iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that
thou mayest be feared” (Psalm 130:3-4).
