God Loves Sinners

“Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him” (Hebrews 9:27-28).

The Bible tells us three things about the future for every single person who has ever sucked air on planet earth:

  1. We will die
  2. We will face judgment
  3. Either we are saved through the life and death of Jesus Christ, or we will pay the penalty of our sins

That will happen.

But, someone may object, “What about God’s grace and mercy?” Won’t God’s grace and mercy apply at judgment?

Listen to what the late R. C. Sproul has to say about God’s grace:

“God’s grace is not infinite. God is infinite. God is gracious. We experience the grace of an infinite God, but grace is not infinite. God sets limits to his patience and forbearance. He warned us over and over again that someday the ax will fall and his judgment will be poured out.”

R. C. Sproul says, “There are only two ways of dying. We can die in faith or we can die in our sins.”

Here’s the thing. God loves sinners. It is God’s desire that not one should perish. Church, we have an awesome privilege to share this truth.

God loves sinners. That’s why God loves me. That’s why God loves you. Repent and receive Jesus as Lord and Savior.
