Considering my past, and considering the fact that I have been backsliding ever since I heard of the gospel, I really must be a fool to think that there is hope for me.

'Says Jesus, ' "The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan. I gave my life for these souls. They are graven upon the palms of my hands. They may have imperfections of character; they may have failed in their endeavours; but they have repented, and I have forgiven and accepted them." ' (PK589)
'The Saviour loves all the human family.' (DA524)
'None have fallen so low, none are so vile, but that they can find deliverance in Christ. The demoniac, in place of prayer, could utter only the words of Satan; yet the heart's unspoken appeal was heard. No cry from a soul in need, though it fail of utterance in words, will be unheeded. Those who will consent to enter into covenant relation with the God of heaven are not left to the power of Satan or to the infirmity of their own nature. They are invited by the Saviour, "Let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me." ' Isaiah 27:5. (DA258/9)
'No circumstances of birth or nationality, no condition of life, can turn away His love from the children of men.' (DA194)
'Whatever may have been your past experience, however discouraging your present circumstances, if you will come to Jesus just as you are, weak, helpless, and despairing, our compassionate Saviour will meet you a great way off, and will throw about you His arms of love and His robe of righteousness. He presents us to the Father clothed in the white raiment of His own character. He [Jesus] pleads before God in our behalf, saying: I have taken the sinner's place. Look not upon this wayward child, but look on me.' (MB9)
'Your hope is not in yourself; it is in Christ. Your weakness is united to His strength, your ignorance to His wisdom, your frailty to His enduring might.' (SC70)
'The Father has bread enough and to spare. Arise, and go to your Father. He will meet you a great way off. He will give you His love and compassion.' (1SM325)
