Sometimes we feel that we have to have something to offer God to come to Him. Think about this, God made everything we see, feel and touch, out of nothing. The next time you feel that you need to bring something to him, remember your first step is realizing you are the created, He is the Creator. Regardless of the past mistakes you have made, God is the Redeemer, He makes all things new. "If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come." He makes all things new.
