The only justice for a life of sin is death.  Every person that walks the earth is guilty no matter how good they may appear.  We have all been judged by God and fallen short of His expectations.

When I was a child and heard these words preached over and over each week, my heart grew ever so heavy.  I was convinced that even the smallest of sins condemned me to an eternity in hell.  It may seem like a whole lot of brainwashing going on in my little head. I even felt worthless as a teen and young adult.  I now realize that my introduction to the wages of sin was necessary.  How else would I have seen my need for a champion – a hero – a savior?

The good news is that we all have salvation within our grasp, not by anything we do, but through the full payment for our redemption by the King of Kings Himself.  He loves us so much that He made the supreme sacrifice.

He died once for all.  Yes, He died for those who defy His name and worship false gods.  He died for the executioners who slit the throats of Christians.  He died for the thugs on our city streets.  He died for the prostitute, the addict, the rapist, the child abuser, cheater, thief, liar, the priest, politician, housewife, business man, child – for all!! He gave His life for the entire world, not just those who think they deserve it. Not one of us deserves justice, but our gracious God believes we do. He made it possible for us to be redeemed.

Look into your hearts.  We are all guilty.  We will die and go to hell if we do not repent and lean on Jesus.  With Him all things are possible.  He became our brother so that we could ALL be called Sons of the most high.

Chief of sinners though I be – Jesus crucified for me!


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
