Never Too Far Gone

He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
Psalm 103:10

Time and time again I have thought about how God does not treat us as our sins deserve. If we truly thought about our sin, we would realize we deserve the ultimate punishment: death. Yet, we are spared because Jesus took our place on the cross so that we might live. 

As I think about my sin, past, present and future, I often wonder why on earth He continues to love me. When we get to the heart of it, how can a perfect God love such imperfect people?  We deserve death, yet we live. What an amazing thing! My heart overflows with gratitude that He does not treat us as our sins deserve. Where would I be if He treated me accordingly?
Have you ever thought that you have gone too far in your sin or thought that God couldn’t love you and use you for His purposes and plans? I know I have. There have been times in my life that I thought my sin was too great for Him to forgive. That’s the beauty of our God. His love never fails and never runs out on us. He is a God of love. 

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes (Ephesians 1:4). As I read that Scripture it overwhelms me to think that our God chose us in Him long before He made this world, to be without fault in His eyes. How can it be that a sinner like me could be without fault before a perfect and holy God? It truly is a gift. Have you received His gift of mercy and grace? Oh, I pray that you have. You have never wandered too far. God will cover you with His unfathomable grace.

Father God, we come before you overwhelmed by Your unfailing love for us. I pray today for those who are entangled in sin and need to experience your mercy and grace. Father, lift them out of the sin that so easily entangles and cover them with your grace. Our hearts are grateful that you do not treat us as our sin deserves. Thank you for loving us, Lord. Amen.
