During my last sermon “The Bible Tells Me So” I brought up a lot of highly talked about
subjects that are facing Christians, some of the topics are hard to discuss however, they are
important. We’ve all made mistakes in life, I know I’ve made plenty. Mistakes are all part of
the journey of life, while the goal is to learn from our mistakes, we should also strive to not
repeat them.
Some people in life like to remind us of our current and past faults, as Christians when
we do make a mistake the nice thing is we serve a God who is full of mercy and grace. But…
What about those mistakes we willingly make, you know, those things we continually do even
though we know it goes against Scripture? See there’s a difference, some things we do are by
complete accident while others are purposely done, regardless if it’s on purpose or accident,
because of the ultimate payment made by Jesus Christ we can be forgiven.
There are a lot of people, many of whom we know very well, or better yet it may be us,
who are continually living in bondage, sin, depression, or despair because they “think” that their
current or past mistakes and sins keep them from ever become free. I’m here today to let you
know that your sin is not too big for God, it doesn’t matter what you are going through or what
you’ve done, if you are ready to walk in the freedom of life that is only found in Jesus, you can
do so today! I can picture it now; Jesus is standing with His arms wide open just waiting for you
to ask Him to forgive you, He wants you to repent of the wrong you’ve done, He wants you to
lay it all at His feet.
It doesn’t matter what’s holding you back; maybe it’s, anger, an abortion, alcohol or
drugs, pornography, gossip, hatefulness, or even depression, if you will repent God will forgive
you and wash your sins away. Can you hear that noise? Seriously listen! That’s Jesus and He’s
knocking on your door, He’s wanting to come inside and just hold you in His arms. You are not
too far gone, the freedom you’ve been praying for is available today.
Acts 3:19
Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not
wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
