Why Can't I Forgive Myself? Reason #2

Description

The gospel tells us that God’s grace never runs out. It is a limitless supply, which means there is no line you can cross.

I’ve crossed the line.

Some people think they are beyond the forgiveness of God. A gentleman named John was listening to the Basic Gospel radio broadcast one day. Something he heard prompted him to call. The shame and guilt in his voice were palpable. I asked him: “John, do you believe you’ve crossed a line and that there is no hope for you?”

“Yes, that’s exactly how I feel.”

What a horrible place to be. If you believe your sins are so big that they have exhausted the supply of God’s grace, you are doomed to a life of self-condemnation and will miss the grace of God for you.

Paul could have easily lived under a blanket of self-condemnation. He blasphemed God’s good name and persecuted Christians. As he said to Timothy, he was the chief of sinners. But God exercised unlimited patience with Paul and poured out his grace on him abundantly.

The gospel tells us that God’s grace never runs out. It is a limitless supply, which means there is no line you can cross. There is no place you can be that God cannot reach you.

Grace takes you out of your sin and places you into Christ Jesus. Since God does not remember your sins, there is no need for you to keep dredging them up.

Look deep inside and find those things that are keeping you from fully embracing the grace of God. Then let the following verse melt those things away:

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:1)
