GRACE GREATER THAN SIN
It may be that you are under the heavy burden of sin (Psalm 38:4), and its weight is simply overwhelming that you can’t even lift up your eyes towards heaven (Psalm 40:12). Your guilt is such that you even feel that God won’t forgive you. But then, that is what GRACE is all about: It is to forgive the most despicable and vilest of sinners; for “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”.
Oh, to experience the
Grace of God is to know that ALL of
our sins are forgiven for Christ’s sake, “in
whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
to the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7). That will fill our
joy and peace, and enable us to sing: “Amazing grace, how sweet the
saved a wretch like me!” It is also to know that “(God)
hath made us accepted” i.e. graced us “in the beloved”
Son of God (v. 6), and that His blood “cleanseth us from
all sin” (1 John
1:7). Yes, praise God that “where sin
abounded, grace did much more abound”. Hallelujah!!! Amen.
