God’s Grace Never Runs Out
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).
Some people think they are beyond the forgiveness of God. A gentleman named John was listening to the Basic Gospel radio broadcast one day. Something he heard prompted him to call. The shame and guilt in his voice were palpable. I asked him: “John, do you believe you’ve crossed a line and that there is no hope for you?”
“Yes, that’s exactly how I feel.”
What a horrible place to be. If you believe your sins are so big that they have exhausted the supply of God’s grace, you are doomed to a life of self-condemnation and will miss the grace of God for you.
Paul could have easily lived under a blanket of self-condemnation. He blasphemed God’s good name and persecuted Christians. As he said to Timothy, he was the chief of sinners. But God exercised unlimited patience with Paul and poured out his grace on him abundantly.
The gospel tells us that God’s grace never runs out. It is a limitless supply, which means there is no line you can cross. There is no place you can be that God cannot reach you.
Grace takes you out of your sin and places you into Christ Jesus. Since God does not remember your sins, there is no need for you to keep dredging them up. Look deep inside and find those things that are keeping you from fully embracing the grace of God. Then let the truth of Romans 8:1 melt those things away.
Do you describe your life as full of joy and peace? Or do you, like so many others, wonder "What am I missing?" You long for peace, joy and purpose but fear, self-effort, and anxiety fill your daily life.
What's missing is fully embracing the grace of God. Grace is relevant and essential for daily life. It is grace that empowers you, teaches you, and it is grace that produces joy, peace, and purpose.
