As Christians, we can have confidence that God is faithful to forgive all sins when we repent and turn to Him. The promises of the Bible that we are His sheep and He is our Shepherd and our King is truly magnificent. But what happens when we repeatedly sin; when we allow strongholds of habits or belief in lies of the enemy to become a normal part of our daily lives? As much as we try to live righteously, we know that we all fall short. Today we're going to ask you to join the conversation about sin and consequences, when we choose to abuse God's mercy and His grace. We're going to look at some of the more serious Scriptures regarding this, like Hebrews 10:26-39:
26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a] and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”[b] 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
