Is There Anything God Can't Do?
“Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)
I heard about a Sunday school class where the teacher said to the children, “Is there anything, boys and girls, God can’t do?” So a little girl raised her hand and said, “Yes, teacher, there’s one thing that God can’t do. He can’t see my sin through the blood of Jesus Christ.”
That little girl was exactly right. Because of the blood of Jesus Christ, all our sins are gone forever. Every single thing I've ever done that has been dishonoring to God has been separated from me as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). And it’s because of that powerful truth that I know I’m saved forever.
Yet, there are those who believe that somehow you or I can sin away our salvation after we've truly trusted in Christ… that there is some sin that we could commit or some failure that would cast us away from God.
Oh no, my friend. This is not true because of the simple fact that when Jesus died on the cross, all of our sin was future. And all of our sin is forgiven by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. If there was one scintilla of sin that was held against you or me, we would be lost forever. But because the blood of Jesus cleanses you from all sin, you can have every confidence you’re safely in His arms!
God can't see your sin through the blood of Christ. So live your life with every confidence that if you're in Him, that precious gift of salvation can never be taken away!
