Hands up all those who believe they have been saved and their sins forgiven them?
Keep your hands up if you believe that your deeds are not what determines if His Grace is bestowed on you – that you are ‘Free’ because of Jesus?
Then your thoughts on the Word of Jesus as quoted in Matt 6:15??
“15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. ”
WE are not to just SAY we forgive all men, their ‘trespasses’ (debts to us, sins) but to actually DO it.
If we don’t then God will hold you fully to account for all sins commited.
Jesus has said there are many who will claim to have done great deeds in His Name come Judgement Day and He will say to them ‘Depart from me, I never new you’ ( Matt 7:23)
i know that this could apply to me as well as to any… but it would do us all well to take heed of and consider this ‘Warning’ – Agree?
Maybe we need a little less ‘certainty’ about where we’re ‘going’ and change our ideas a little?
What we ‘do’ down here in the material ‘world’ MATTERS.
Little ‘bad habits’ can often lead to bigger ones.
