Our post today reflects on why we are each individually responsible for our sinful actions. It’s true that our ‘default’ nature is a sin nature and the reason it’s so easy to think – and then act upon - wrong motives. God gave us free will and He won’t make us love Him, He won’t make us stop sinning, and He won’t prevent us from going to hell if that’s what we’re determined to do.
But, we are living in the age of grace, which is the new covenant God made with humanity, and it cost God the life of His own Son as a sacrifice for our sins. His blood now covers every sin committed by those who accept by faith that this is true, and that makes our choice to love Him meaningful to Him. In even more grace, He has made it impossible for us to mess up our eternal destiny if we accept and trust in His Son for our salvation.
“…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve… But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” Joshua 24:15.
There’s nothing we have that God needs; Job 35:6-7 says our righteousness doesn’t help Him and our sinfulness doesn’t hurt Him. They only impact us and those around us.
