I am not a babe in Christ.

I consider myself a student of scripture, a follower of the LORD, a disciple of Christ. Perhaps more feeble minded and dense than most for upon reading the following I was greatly impacted by the Truth of these Words:

“…Ye cannot serve the LORD, for He is an holy God; He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.” Joshua 24:19


We cannot serve the LORD because He is holy and we are not. God will not, NO He cannot forgive our transgressions or our sins because He is holy and we as sin filled transgressors are not.

Sin is unforgivable - sin demands payment and payment must be made.

But God is love, and jealous for His creation. Not as man understands jealousy, but jealous in that He longs for affection, love and fellowship with His creation.

And so God Himself came and became the payment for the sins of all who will accept His sacrifice, His forgiveness, His mercy and His love.

Payment has been made. Paid in Full...
