All have sinned!
Everyone who is not saved is separated from God by sin.
My hope is that everyone could come to the knowledge that there is none righteous but God! No matter whether we were born into poverty or a rich inheritance, we are all on a level playing field when it comes to salvation! There is no one separated any farther from God than the other.
18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
If you have fallen into alchohol, drugs, prostitution, etc. There is as much hope for you as there is the good moral person! You are loved of God! Many people consider these things the top of the sin chain! God never mentioned one of these when he said,
Proverbs 6:(Amplified Bbile)
16 These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,(D)
18 A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren.
These 7 things things describe the person mentioned in verse 12! (You will have to go look it up)
Now, these are all conditions of the heart! They are things that separate us from God! These are the things that the Carnal Christians harbors many times! We have to get off of our high horses and try to find the love of God and press in on that! Fill our hearts with that and we can truly understand that God is not a respector of persons! For all have sinned….All are sinners and on the same level in God’s eyes! In the end that is all that matters, where you stand in God’s eyes. People will condemn you but not God!
You can condemn the drug addict if you want to but God has not condemned them!
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Read it and understand! Jesus Christ came to save sinners. We have all sinned! You are so loved by God the Father! You cannot understand the depth of His love for you! You are precious in His sight! He desires you to love Him!
No matter what you have done or where you have been there is a way for you to find God! It is the way of the Cross of Calvary! Jesus nailed our sins to His cross so you could be the righteousness of God through Him! He paid for your sin, no matter how big or little you may think it to be! No one can come to God except through the Cross!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 And you who were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh (your sensuality, your sinful carnal nature), [God] brought to life together with [Christ], having [freely] forgiven us all our transgressions,
14 Having cancelled and blotted out and wiped away the handwriting of the note (bond) with its legal decrees and demands which was in force and stood against us (hostile to us). This [note with its regulations, decrees, and demands] He set aside and cleared [a]completely out of our way by nailing it to [His] cross.
When it comes to salvation, there is no big sin and no little sin! The end matter is whether you have accepted God’s glorious and free salvation through Jesus Christ. You can not earn it, work it out, deserve it, buy it, in no way is it negotiable! Ye must be born again, but it is free to all who will call upon Him!
King James Version (KJV)
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Jesus came to save sinners! Remember the Apostle Paul before his conversion stood and consented to the stoning to death of Stephen! Paul considered himself the chieftest of sinners but after his conversion ended up writing about 1/3rd of the New Testament.
God desires you to come to Him! He has made it so easy for you!
God is “LOVE”
