John 9:31-33 AMPC
30The man replied, Well, this is astonishing! Here a Man has opened my eyes, and yet you do not know where He comes from. [That is amazing!] 31We know that God does not listen to sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and a worshiper of Him and does His will, He listens to him. 32Since the beginning of time it has never been heard that anyone opened the eyes of a man born blind. 33If this Man were not from God, He would not be able to do anything like this.
Is Jesus Enough?
Would God send His only Son to bear our sin, becoming sin itself, and then judge Him without mercy for that sin if His sacrifice wasn’t enough? No! Yet, many Christians act as though it wasn’t enough and continue to believe God is withholding His blessing because of their sin. It’s time to learn the truth.
Over the years, I have ministered to thousands of people directly who just won’t let the Bible get in the way of their theology. Religious traditions and widely accepted teaching have become the basis of their beliefs, rather than the Bible. The results are obvious: Their relationship with Christ is profiting them little, or at the very least, less than God intended.
These are people who have accepted Jesus as their Savior. Yet, they can’t get healed, they’re unhappy, depressed, fearful, and full of unbelief. That shouldn’t be! As you read, I encourage you to allow the Bible, God’s Word, to get right in the middle of your theology.
Let me start by making this radical statement. If you’re conscious of sin, then you truly don’t understand the grace of your salvation through Jesus. It sounds radical, but it’s true. That is totally different from the way most people think. I’m not saying this to hurt anybody, because I understand; I struggle with the same thing.
It’s different from what most of us have been told. But this is what God’s Word declares. God is not imputing, or laying to our account, our sin.
