Let’s not stand in judgment over anyone and believe that God’s grace can not reach them, for all of us are born sinners, all of us need God’s grace, His grace has reached billions before us and will reach others after us until Christ returns.
What if God gave us the same grace we gave others, He measured out what we received based on what we gave, how would you do?
God’s grace is just as much for the man or woman locked away in a prison as it is for the man or woman who sits in the church on Sunday.
God’s grace is not bound by mankind or our barriers, it reaches through the darkness, the anger, the fear. His grace is limitless and free to all who will receive Him.
He has changed the hearts of the wicked as well as the hearts of the self-righteous, I have seen it, I have felt it, for God’s grace has saved me, changed me.
Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it from all unrighteousness, let us never forget that, or forget we once all walked in darkness, and only by God’s grace and revelation did we receive Christ, pray for others always and know that God is at work in their lives as He is ours.
God’s word says this:
“For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Anyone who believes in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.”John 3:16-18 CSB
“What then? Are we any better off? Not at all! For we have already charged that both Jews and Gentiles are all under sin, as it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one. There is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away; all alike have become worthless. There is no one who does what is good, not even one. Their throat is an open grave; they deceive with their tongues. Vipers’ venom is under their lips. Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and wretchedness are in their paths, and the path of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes. Now we know that whatever the law says, it speaks to those who are subject to the law, so that every mouth may be shut and the whole world may become subject to God’s judgment. For no one will be justified in his sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law. But now, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been revealed, attested by the Law and the Prophets. The righteousness of God is through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe, since there is no distinction. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God presented him as an atoning sacrifice in his blood, received through faith, to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. God presented him to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so that he would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:9-26 CSB
“Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or males who have sex with males, no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom. And some of you used to be like this. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 CSB
