Nothing Can Keep Us From Jesus Except
Nothing can ever keep us from Jesus except for our sin. It might begin as the sin of our forebears, it might continue as the sin of the leaders we follow but ultimately it becomes our own personal sin. That goes for total unbelievers and for carnal Christians.Isaiah 59:2: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
John 1:12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:Romans 10:13: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Acts 2:21: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.John 6:37: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
John 7:37: In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.Acts 17:27: That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
Deuteronomy 4:29: But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.Jeremiah 29:13: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
The worst of our sins is rejecting Jesus. When we receive Him we are forgiven for that sin as well as for the rest of them too.John 1:11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not. Luke 19:14: But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.Acts 4:12: Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
1 John 5:11-12: And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
