One of the great blessings of Christianity is the work of grace done by Jesus on the cross.  In that dark and terrible day Jesus accomplished redeption, forgiveness of sin and so much more.  He also made it possible for us to recover from a sin like the one this site discusses and find a place to serve God once more.

I have the great joy of meeting almost every week with our former pastor whose sin motivated me to write these posts.  He told me he’s closer to God in his walk now than he has ever been.  He’s even looking for a way to once more serve God in ministry of some kind.  I’m thrilled for the redeeming work of God that grace makes possible.  I’m glad God can redeem lives we would never consider worthy of redemption.  We seem to be more comfortable dismissing the sinners among us rather than forgiving, redeeming and restoring them, but thankfully God loves the sinner too much to let them be thrown on the trash heap of failed lives.

I’m thankful for the grace of God that provides redemption, restoration and healing for all of us.

  1. Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover
    somebody that truly knows what they are talking about online.
    You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More and more people must read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular given that
    you surely possess the gift.

  2. Thank God for his grace and mercy. He is the God of another chance! I’m looking for the Lord to restore my marriage and me. I pray God will strengthren every believer and keep us under the blood of Christ.

  3. preacher, I will be praying for you. He does, indeed, keep us “under the blood of Christ”. Once we have trusted him that transaction is complete. The rest of our lives we are becoming what he already has made us to be. One verse I love is Hebrews 10:14 which says, “He has made perfect forever those who are becoming holy.” There is that already, but not yet tension in our lives and it is a growing process for us to become like Christ. I will be praying for you.
