GOD’S GRACE IS FOR EVERYONE
……even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus…..
Whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not God has a layaway plan for your salvation. God has a layaway plan for your salvation. This layaway plan was put in place over two thousand years ago when Christ died on the cross for the remission of our sins. This is stated by Jesus Christ in the bible in Matthew 26:28 (NKJV) …..For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins….. All of us (if we care to admit it) have fallen short of what we know as what is right. The good news is that your sins have already been forgiven because Christ died on the cross for the remission of our sins. You would say then why is there a layaway plan for your salvation? Salvation is a gift from God, but even a gift has to be accepted or purchase. You have salvation when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. God place a layaway plan for those who do not believe in Jesus Christ. This layaway plan was made before we were born. All we have to do is repent of our sins and accept Christ as your Lord and Savior. When you repent of your sins and believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins you are saved. How do we know that Jesus came for the repentance of our sins? It is stated in Mark 2: 15-17….Now it happened, as He was dining in Levi’s house, that many tax collectors and sinners also sat together with Jesus and Hid disciples; for they were many and they followed Him. And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, “How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard it He said to them, “Those who well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance…..
It doesn’t matter what sin or sins you have committed in your life god still has his layaway plan of salvation for you. You might have committed murder or stolen many things. You might have been a drug dealer. There is proof that Jesus forgives us of our sins in the bible where two criminals were hung beside Jesus at Calvary one criminal on the left side and one on the right side of Jesus. In Mark 23: 39 to 46….Then one of the criminals who was hanged blasphemed Him, saying “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.” But the other, answering, rebuked him saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds, but this Man has done nothing wrong. Then he said to Jesus “Lord, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last…… We all have sinned and God knows this and we would all perish in hell if God’s Grace, Love and Mercy through Jesus Christ death didn’t save us. The first criminal missed the point entirely when he told Jesus to save Himself and them. The fact is Jesus didn’t need saving at all since he committed no crime or sin. Jesus came and died in place of our condemnation of sin. The other criminal repented of his sins when he said we were justly found guilty of our crimes. He then asked Jesus to save his soul and Jesus did. Now you have no excuse to say that God will never forgive you of your sins because God’s Grace is for Everyone. I submitted a gospel video related to this article. Enjoy this video. Always remember to “Keep the Faith and God Loves and So Do I!!!
