You are hoping that works will get you what only faith can secure for you.
- Galatians 3:2
I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?
You deliberately tolerate and indulge the sinful nature.
- Hebrews 10:26
If we deliberately go on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no further sacrifice for sins remains,
You have forsaken your first love
- Revelation 2:4, 5/ You walked away from your first love—why? What’s going on with you, anyway? Do you have any idea how far you’ve fallen? Turn back! Recover your dear early love.
You do not trust God, the scripture nor the church
You are completely isolated from everything. That includes God and His people
You have an unhealthy pursuit of money and material things
You are vengeful and unwilling to forgive
You have no desire for worship, prayer, obedience and church fellowship
You no longer feel His presence, hear His voice, or fear Him
You demand perfection of others
Yet, you are longing, deep down inside you, for God to do something about all the above because you feel helpless
Let me assure you. Grace is not too far from you.
Grace is not an exemption from failure. It is, however, what makes it possible to sustain hope in the midst of failure.
Earnestly fervently Jesus is calling, calling oh sinner come home.
