Are you ready to return to God?

“For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion .. for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.” – 2 Chronicles 30:9

Have you done things you regret in life? Have you committed sins so evil that you cannot even speak to others about them? Welcome to humanity. We all have. And the good news is that …no matter how low we have sunk in our sinful behavior, no matter what wrongs we have done in life, God, who is gracious and merciful will forgive us. But notice the verse says “IF” you turn again to The Lord. The forgiveness comes when we make the decision in our hearts to confess our sins to The Lord and commit ourselves to returning to Godly living. This is repentance. Jesus Christ, who earned forgiveness for us by taking God’s wrath for our sins on the cross, has made God’s grace in our lives a reality, and through faith in Jesus’ sacrifice, we are saved.

So do not think that your actions have made you a lost cause in God’s eyes or that the Lord is through with you because you are just “too evil.” The Bible says that wherever sin exists, God’s grace (meaning His free forgiveness) is greater. No one has sinned so much that they are no longer eligible for Heaven. The question is whether you want to acknowledge those evil deeds to The Lord and receive His mercy.  If you are a Christian who has fallen into sin, repent. If you are not a born again believer, know that no one is beyond redemption. God’s love surpasses human understanding and when we humble ourselves, confess our sins to Him, choose to leave it in our past and live according to God’s commands, Our Loving Father in Heaven is ready to forgive us.  Do not keep Him waiting.
