KEY SCRIPTURE:2 Corinthians 5:19 KJV ” To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation”.
God’s love for mankind is such an amazing thing. Men keep rejecting His love because many have not come to terms with God’s love for them.
Please let’s consider an aspect of the love of God for all men. According to the Bible, the sins of men was what l separated them from God, before the Lord Jesus was crucified on the cross.
Isaiah 59:1&2 KJV “Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” From the preceding scripture, we see that, our sins hid God’s
face and actually separated us from the father. This condition, as a result of God’s amazing love for us is no more the situation.
Our key scripture reveals that now through the death of Jesus, God our father does not count the sins of the sinner against him or her any longer. The scripture says God was in Jesus Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. The word ‘ reconciling’ is the Greek word ‘katalasso’ which means to ‘change thoroughly’ or ‘to be brought into favor’. The scripture said He did not impute or count their sins against them., why? Because Jesus has taken the sins away and brought them into favor with the father .
Oh, such love. It is not the sin of the sinner that keeps God away from him, but rather man’s decision not to accept the sacrifice of Jesus for their sins. God in His love for mankind has taken away the sin of the world through Jesus.
John 1:29 KJV “……., Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” .If a man dies without accepting God’s love, he or she would end up in hell fire because he did not make use of God’s offer of love. Dear brother or sister God our father is not counting your sins against you. The Lord Jesus has brought you into favor with God. He took away your sins and nailed them to the cross and is waiting on you to accept this great act of love. Now what must you do?
1.Repent or change your mind about God’s love for you.
2.Accept the love of God by believing Jesus took away all your sins.
3.Confess Jesus as the Lord of your life.
Note “When a man accepts that his sins has been taken away, he would not go back to them. “
Heavenly father, I believe in your love for me. I accept that Jesus took all my sins away. I confess Him as my Lord
Rom 4:8 KJV “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin”.
2 Corinth 5:21 KJV. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
