“For [there is] not a just man on earth who does good And does not sin.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20 NKJV)
Do you think you are so special that you always do good and never sin?
Do you think you are so special that Jesus did not die for you?
Do you think you are so special that your sins are bigger than His sacrifice?
Do you think you are so special that his death did not pay for your healing?
Do you think you are so special that the blood of Jesus cannot atone for your iniquity?
Do you think you are so special that His blood was not enough for your transgressions?
Do you think you are so special that He is too weak to carry your sickness and pains?
Do you think you are so special that you can work your way to heaven?
The Word of God says, “For [there is] not a just man on earth who does good And does not sin.”(Ecclesiastes 7:20 NKJV)
“All have turned away; all alike have become worthless. There is no one who does what is good, not even one. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. However, the good news of the Word of God also says “They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” (Romans 3:12, 23-24, 5:8, 6:23, Romans 10:13 NKJV)
You are not so special because of your sins but because of your Redeemer.
I enCOURAGE you once and for all to forgive yourself. Settle your salvation in your heart. You are not your sins! You are not condemned but redeemed and forgiven!
“[There is] therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1 NKJV)
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,” nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:39 NKJV)
The baby in a manger that we celebrate at Christmas came to earth on a mission. He journeyed from heaven to the manger through Israel to the cross and rose again back to heaven in order to purchase us back. And He did just that! Glory to God in the Highest!
