God's grace reaches far past our understanding into the depths of depravity, know that no one is beyond the reach of His grace.
Many people believe their sins can not be forgiven, but the only sin that is unforgivable is rejecting Christ as our Lord and Savior, the good news here if you are reading this now, then God is still giving you the opportunity to receive Christ as your Lord and Savior.
If you are already a Christian, there is no unforgivable sin.....
re-read that; If you are already a Christian, there is no unforgivable sin, our sins were covered at the cross, there is, therefore, no condemnation in Christ.
Understand this though, this in no way gives us a license to live a sinful lifestyle in rebellion to God.
A person who rejects Christ's words and walks in disobedience to Him has probably never really accepted Him as Lord and Savior and is still rejecting Him, and headed for hell.
What is heartbreaking is there are millions who set in churches week after week, whose heart, mind, body, and soul don't belong to God, they are harder to reach with the truth for they have their own form of godliness.
I know for I was once that person,
I had been in the church the first part of my life, really though it was half-hearted. I saw myself as a Christian, but really I was a churchgoer, which is totally different. Going to church, week after week and ignoring God's truth just hearing what you want it’s like going to the movies, your there only to be entertained and feel good.
If we love Jesus, then we will obey Him, this does not mean we will be perfect, we are fallible, it does mean we won't continue to live in a lifestyle of sin, ignoring His word and way.
The consequences are real for those who reject Him, damnation, and separation from Him for eternity, by their own choosing.
Jesus came not to condemn, but save. Man chooses condemnation over salvation when we refuse to surrender our lives, our wills to Him.
Today is the day to turn to Christ and surrender yourself to Him, lat aside your will and take up your cross and follow Jesus.
God's word says this:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.”
For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God; for He gives the Spirit without measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hand. He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:16-21, 34-36 NASB
“as it is written, “T HERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE; THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS, THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE.” “T HEIR THROAT IS AN OPEN GRAVE, W ITH THEIR TONGUES THEY KEEP DECEIVING,” “T HE POISON OF ASPS IS UNDER THEIR LIPS ”; “W HOSE MOUTH IS FULL OF CURSING AND BITTERNESS ”; “T HEIR FEET ARE SWIFT TO SHED BLOOD, D ESTRUCTION AND MISERY ARE IN THEIR PATHS, A ND THE PATH OF PEACE THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN.” “T HERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES.” Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin. But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:10-26 NASB
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” Romans 5:1-11 NASB
“Then some Pharisees and scribes *came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, “Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.” And He answered and said to them, “Why do you yourselves transgress the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God said, ‘H ONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER,’ and, ‘H E WHO SPEAKS EVIL OF FATHER OR MOTHER IS TO BE PUT TO DEATH.’ But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever I have that would help you has been given to God, ” he is not to honor his father or his mother.’ And by this you invalidated the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you: ‘T HIS PEOPLE HONORS M E WITH THEIR LIPS, B UT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM M E. B UT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP M E, T EACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ ” After Jesus called the crowd to Him, He said to them, “Hear and understand. It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.” Then the disciples *came and *said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” Peter said to Him, “Explain the parable to us.” Jesus said, “Are you still lacking in understanding also? Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated? But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. These are the things which defile the man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the man.” Matthew 15:1-20 NASB
