Another one of the “jewels” that I learned again on Easter Sunday morning is something that I’ve known all of my life but I heard it in a new way that makes it a lot easier to explain to people.

Many people say that there are “unpardonable” sins.   That someone who has murdered or who is in jail for sexual assault or _______________ (fill in the blank) can’t go to heaven because of what they’ve done, who they’ve hurt or the pain they have caused.

God says that’s not true.    God will accept anyone and everyone.

All we have to do is accept the cure.

Sin is a disease.   It’s the worst disease ever.

God gave us the cure.    We remembered the events behind God giving us the cure this past weekend.

All we have to do is accept the cure.

That means we need to say, “God, I know that I’m a sinner, I know I don’t deserve it, but I want your cure.   I believe in your cure.”

All we have to do is accept the cure.

That means that once we accept the cure, God wipes us clean of the disease.

Our sin is gone.

All we have to do is accept the cure.

And no matter what we’ve done, no matter how we’ve messed up, no matter who we’ve hurt, God claims us as His own.

All we have to do is accept the cure.

I have, have you?
