You Are Never Too Sinful To Be Forgiven

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

There is hope for those that think there is no hope. For those that think that they have sinned too much for God to forgive them, there is good news. God sent his Son, his only begotten Son, to this Earth to pay the ultimate price so that you, in spite of all your sins, could be forgiven, and that you could come back into Heavenly Father’s presence. In spite of how unbelievable it may seem, you have been forgiven, if you are willing to give up on those sins and never go back.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles stated in a talk from the April 2006 General Conference: “Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs or gambling, or the pernicious contemporary plague of pornography? Is your marriage in trouble or your child in danger? Are you confused with gender identity or searching for self-esteem? Do you—or someone you love—face disease or depression or death? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma’s testimony is my testimony: ‘I do know,’ he says, ‘that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions.’

This reliance upon the merciful nature of God is at the very center of the gospel Christ taught. I testify that the Savior’s Atonement lifts from us not only the burden of our sins but also the burden of our disappointments and sorrows, our heartaches and our despair. From the beginning, trust in such help was to give us both a reason and a way to improve, an incentive to lay down our burdens and take up our salvation. There can and will be plenty of difficulties in life. Nevertheless, the soul that comes unto Christ, who knows His voice and strives to do as He did, finds a strength, as the hymn says, ‘beyond [his] own.’ The Savior reminds us that He has ‘graven [us] upon the palms of [His] hands.’ Considering the incomprehensible cost of the Crucifixion and Atonement, I promise you He is not going to turn His back on us now. When He says to the poor in spirit, ‘Come unto me,’ He means He knows the way out and He knows the way up. He knows it because He has walked it. He knows the way because He is the way.”

I testify that you have forgiveness for your sins, regardless how bad you think they have been. Come home unto Christ.

In The Name of Jesus Christ
