“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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).
One of the greatest deceptions in the life of a religious person is that sin separates us from God’s love… That is NOT true!! In fact, sin is what attracted God’s ultimate love, sacrifice, and SAVING grace, to redeem us so we can be reconciled to the Father!! You must not let religious minded people cause you to misunderstand God’s love or His Word. While it is true that there are things He does not like, there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus!! Repent, turn back to God and begin again!!
I have seen people that have made ugly mistakes and fail badly, but instead of praying and restoring, the religious board of directors in many 21st century churches sentenced, shunned, sat some down, and casted others out, when they, themselves, are not free of sin. They measure right and wrong by the law and not by God’s LOVE. Don’t you ever forget God’s Word.. We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.. NOT HIS LOVE..
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
Do not let a religious spirit make Christ going to the Cross of no effect!! He went there to conquer sin, death, and the grave, not to fear it!! Be a fisher of men.. stop throwing them back! Jesus didn’t do that to you, He leaves 99 for 1..!!”~David E. Taylor~
