Unforgivable

We’re acknowledging two things when we see something that we call unforgivable or tell someone we’ll never forgive them. 

The depravity of man.

The horror of sin. 

You know what? It doesn’t deserve to be forgiven, which makes grace so crazy and powerful. 

I’m reading a book that I can only get through a chapter at a time. I spend a lot of time wanting to frisbee the book or do bad things to bad people. 

The evil described inside ignites a righteous rage. It’s about those that harm kids. 

If someone harmed a kid you knew, would you forgive them?

Do they deserve it?

If you say no, you’re proving my point. Sin doesn’t deserve to be forgiven. The wages of sin is death. 

“God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.”

Psalm 7:11 KJV

Then there’s grace. We don’t get what we deserve as soon as we sin. 

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

2 Peter 3:9 NIV

When you start following Jesus, the Holy Spirit kills the evil inside you. That’s sanctification. 

The cancer we call evil has to die. Either within the person or at the Judgment. 

As I’ve read this dark book, I’m amazed God hasn’t rained fire from above. These people do not deserve to live. 

I am ready for a world set right, and I’m amazed God has given me so many chances.
