"Behold, the Lord's hand is not shorted, that He cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that He cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear." - Isaiah 59 V1, 2
"But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ." - Ephesians 2 V13
Our sins have separated us from God and there is no reconciliation outside of Christ or a price that one can pay to please God. God hides His face from those who have rejected God's grace and do their own will. But Christ Jesus brings us near to God and He bought our redemption with His own blood on the cross. All we need to do is reach out to receive the grace which God freely offers through Jesus Christ. Receive the forgiveness of sins which God offers through Jesus Christ, and there is no forgiveness outside the redemption that Christ offers. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
