I am hell bound!”
My life is a wreck!
I can’t wait to end it all, God!
Sarah screamed at the top of her voice in tears and frustration.
“Sarah! Don’t say that. What is wrong with you?” Esther exclaimed, shocked by her friend.
“In the last three months, I have committed unforgivable blunders,” she cried more.
“I am no longer the saint you used to know, Esther. I slept with Charles, even after you warned me about him, got pregnant and secretly aborted his child. I allowed him to lure me to his bed of destruction and now I am doomed.”
“You are not doomed, Sarah. We are humans and are not above mistakes. Have you forgotten what Romans 8:1 says?
“There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus…”
“Who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit,” Sarah completed it in tears. “Esther, I have not walked after the spirit, but after the flesh. God will surely condemn me for this. He tried to warn me through you, but I was deaf to it all. I can’t even face my parents again. My mom is mad at me and my dad doesn’t even speak to me anymore. The doctor said I may never give birth again. God is already venting his anger on me. I don’t deserve all this. I would rather be dead than face the wrath of God. ” Her tears poured in pain and deep regret.
Hmm! Sarah, you have it all wrong. Let’s stop this already and delve into the scriptures.
Is God furious with you?
The truth is no!
If God loves a sinner, what more you, His own?
Can God, who is rich in mercy, with great love, wherewith he loved us (Ephesians 2:4), be angry with you or punish you?
He has loved thee with an everlasting love and has drawn you with His lovingkindness (Jeremiah 31:3).
God’s kind of love takes no record of wrongs (1Corinth 13:5)
His promise to every believer is eternal (everlasting) life and not a temporary life. (John 3:16).
As a believer, you have the life of Christ and when He sees you, all He sees is Jesus. So, why not change your focus? Rather than see your wrongs, see Jesus and who you are in Christ, because the life you now live is the life of Christ (Galatians 2:20).
“He keeps him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him” (Isaiah 26:3). Dear friend, rather than worry or punish yourself from within, can you keep your mind focused on Christ, His word and His love?
Your wrongs or mistakes cannot separate you from Christ as a believer.
Do you not know that nothing can separate you from the love of Christ?
I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Knowing that you cannot be separated from Christ, why allow yourself to dine with the bondage of fear, guilt, and condemnation?
Romans 8:15 says: “For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba Father.”
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” (Galatians 5:1)
God is ever your friend, ever your lover, never leaving you nor forsaking you. He is with you till the end of age.
If I ascend up into heaven, He is there, if I make my bed in hell, behold, he is still there. (Psalms 139:8)… He is always there, even at the oddest hours and places, because you are His own.
God’s love for you is unconditional. So, fasten your heart to receive the love of God. He is ever there to embrace you, strengthen you, uphold you, love you and not judge or condemn you.
If you are still confused about God’s love and eternal salvation or need more enlightenment, then you need to read the book – ‘Can A Believer Go to Hell?’ by Vincent Arifalo
It is a must-read book for everyone who desires deep and explicit truths or revelations about Christ, His love, and salvation. One click, one copy is all you need to gain illumination and overcome the feeling of guilt, fear and condemnation.
