WHAT’S DONE IS NOT DONE!

ALAN JACKSON, THE COUNTRY SUPER STAR, SANG IN ONE OF HIS MANY HIT SONGS A FEW YEARS AGO A TRAGIC LINE. HE SANG OF A FAILING LOVE; “SOMEDAY, I’LL GET MY LIFE STRAIGHT….AND SHE SAID ‘IT’S TOO LATE, WHAT’S DONE IS DONE.'”

SOMETIMES WE GIVE UP ON OTHERS; CONDEMNING THEM WITH THE LINE… ‘IT’S TOO LATE, WHAT’S DONE IS DONE’. HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU SUMMED UP A SITUATION IN YOUR OWN LIFE WITH THIS THOUGHT ABOUT YOURSELF?

AREN’T WE BLESSED THAT GOD DOES NOT FEEL THAT WAY?

NO MATTER WHAT WE HAVE DONE, NO MATTER HOW HORRIBLE OUR SINS SEEM OR HOW OFTEN WE HAVE SINNED, GOD FORGIVES. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE HAVE TURNED OUR BACK ON GOD, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES WE HAVE WALKED AWAY FROM HIS HEALING TOUCH…GOD IS STILL THERE FOR US. GOD SENT HIS ONLY SON, JESUS, TO FORGIVE US AND TAKE ON ALL OUR SINS.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE. WHAT’S DONE IS NOT DONE. NOW IS THE TIME TO ‘GET YOUR LIFE STRAIGHT’. LOOK NO FURTHER THAN JESUS. ASK FOR HIS FORGIVENESS. TELL HIM OF ALL YOUR SINS. HE WILL FORGIVE YOU. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS. IT’S NOT TOO LATE. DON’T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF OR OTHERS. GOD HAS NOT GIVEN UP.

“FOR I WILL FORGIVE THEIR WICKEDNESS AND WILL REMEMBER THEIR SINS NO MORE.” JEREMIAH 31:34b AND HEBREWS 8:12 NIV
