God's Grace Is Bigger Than My Sin

It's bigger than your sin as well.  No matter what we've done, or when, God is a God of infinite Grace and forgiveness.  

So what is it that holds so many of us back from committing to God?  Is it that we can't forgive ourselves?  That we feel unworthy?  That, in itself, is a form of worship of our own power, a form of narcissism. We need to surrender ourselves completely to God, when we fall to our knees and cry "Jesus, save me!" our surrender is complete.  It's more than regret for past sins, it's a complete repentance, we are dead to our old selves and all things in us are new.  That is the power and love of God's Grace, and for us to be completely new in Christ we have to stop remembering what God has forgiven.  Else, we aren't new at all, we're still controlled by our past sins.

"Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace."
  

"I have one great fear in my heart, that one day when they have turned to loving, they will find we are turned to hating."

I have found when I do actually cry to God he seems to listen (not the right word) and show me more. It reminds me of a parent and child when the child is hurt by something and how it really draws our attention to them. You just have to hug and love on them.  Smiley
  

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
