The Ellie Bellie Meme

 

 

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as Ellen White from the blog Ellie Bellie Blog. She states that she has been “dragged into this new cult of memeing”. She does not explain what blogger “dragged her”. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft’s thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

Chapter 3 – – Repentance

 

We as sinners will not change completely until we see the sinfulness of sin.  Don’t change just because you don’t want to be punished, but rather because you see how it hurts the Savior.  We don’t need to repent before we come to Christ, but come just as we are and He will fix us. We need to repent even from the smallest sin, so that we will be saved.

To be in harmony and just with Christ, we must repent. We must repent and turn away from sin. Repentance includes sorrow for sin AND turning away from it. But, we as sinners won’t change until we see the sinfulness of sin. There are many who fail to understand the true nature of repentance. Many sorrow that they have sinned and even make an outward reformation because they fear that their wrongdoing will bring suffering upon themselves. But this is not repentance in the Bible sense. They lament the suffering rather than the sin.

True repentance does not try to avoid the suffering and pain, it is about being whole and coming before Christ and being in harmony with Him.  Some may think that they cannot come to Christ unless they first repent, and that repentance prepares for the forgiveness of their sins. It is true that repentance does precede the forgiveness of sins; for it is only the broken and contrite heart that will feel the need of a Saviour. But must the sinner wait till he has repented before he can come to Jesus? Is repentance to be made an obstacle between the sinner and the Saviour? The Bible does not teach that the sinner must repent before he can heed the invitation of Christ, “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. It is the virtue that goes forth from Christ, that leads to genuine repentance. We can no more repent without the Spirit of Christ to awaken the conscience than we can be pardoned without Christ.

Christ is the source of every right impulse. He is the only one that can implant in the heart enmity against sin. Every desire for truth and purity, every conviction of our own sinfulness, is an evidence that His Spirit is moving upon our hearts.

 Let none deceive themselves with the thought that God, in His great love and mercy, will yet save even the rejecters of His grace. The exceeding sinfulness of sin can be estimated only in the light of the cross. When men urge that God is too good to cast off the sinner, let them look to Calvary. It was because there was no other way in which man could be saved, because without this sacrifice it was impossible for the human race to escape from the defiling power of sin, and be restored to communion with holy beings,–impossible for them again to become partakers of spiritual life,–it was because of this that Christ took upon Himself the guilt of the disobedient and suffered in the sinner’s stead. The love and suffering and death of the Son of God all testify to the terrible enormity of sin and declare that there is no escape from its power, no hope of the higher life, but through the submission of the soul to Christ.

Let us not regard sin as a trivial thing.

“Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” 2 Corinthians 6:2; Hebrews 3:7, 8.

     Many accept an intellectual religion, a form of godliness, when the heart is not cleansed. Let it be your prayer, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10. Deal truly with your own soul. Be as earnest, as persistent, as you would be if your mortal life were at stake. This is a matter to be settled between God and your own soul, settled for eternity. A supposed hope, and nothing more, will prove your ruin.

     When Satan comes to tell you that you are a great sinner, look up to your Redeemer and talk of His merits. Acknowledge your sin, but tell the enemy that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” and that you may be saved by His matchless love. 1 Timothy 1:15. We have been great sinners, but Christ died that we might be forgiven. The merits of His sacrifice are sufficient to present to the Father in our behalf. Those to whom He has forgiven most will love Him most, and will stand nearest to His throne to praise Him for His great love and infinite sacrifice. It is when we most fully comprehend the love of God that we best realize the sinfulness of sin.

Man originally had powers and a well-balanced mind, but disobedience caused that to cease. Where there was love, selfishness now existed. With our own power, meaning on our own, it is impossible to resist sin because we are so weak. If not for God, man would forever be Satan’s captors.

Without sin, a person is joyful when spending time with Christ. A sinful person finds no joy in spending time with Christ. A person not in harmony with Christ doesn’t enjoy time spent with Him. This is kinda painful to read. Made my chest tighten. The sinner, if permitted to go, would not feel comfortable in heaven. He would welcome destruction as to hide his face from Jesus. It is no arbitrary decree on the part of God that excludes the wicked from heaven; they are shut out by their own unfitness for its companionship. It is impossible for us on our own accord to escape from sin. We need Christ. Education, culture, the exercise of the will, human effort, all have their proper sphere, but in heaven they are powerless. They may produce an outward correctness of behavior, but they cannot change the heart; they cannot purify the springs of life. There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before men can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ. Jesus is the only medium of communication between God and man.
And the only way to God is Christ. He says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6. The heart of God yearns over His earthly children with a love stronger than death. In giving up His Son, He has poured out to us all heaven in one gift. The Saviour’s life and death and intercession, the ministry of angels, the pleading of the Spirit, the Father working above and through all, the unceasing interest of heavenly beings,–all are enlisted in behalf of man’s redemption.
