Given the grace and goodness of God the Father in giving us the sacrifice of Jesus, and given the work of the Holy Spirit in the gospel offer to all men, the only sin that is damnable is the sin of perpetual hardheartedness—the sin of rejecting grace, and willfully remaining in unbelief. The wrath of God remains on the one who stubbornly remains in his unbelief (John 3:36).
But even here, the grace of God extends an invitation to the hardhearted. “Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry” (s. 46:12-13):
Now there is a way for the hardhearted to twist what I am about to say in order to put a religious veneer over their hardheartedness, which is not the same thing as the blood of Christ applied to it. But God wants His grace stated this way regardless.
Because of the blood of Jesus Christ, the only sin that can keep you from this Table is the sin of refusing to come (by various proud devices) to this Table.
Hear me carefully. Have you used pornography? God doesn’t care. Are you a thief? God doesn’t care. Have you told clusters of lies? God doesn’t care. Are you lazy? God doesn’t care. Are you addicted to self-pity? God doesn’t care. Have you been given to drunkenness? God doesn’t care. Are you an adulterer? God doesn’t care. Has your language been profane? God doesn’t care. Here you may find full, free, and complete forgiveness.
But here is the potential deal-breaker. Are you been hardhearted? Even here, listen to the invitation of Isaiah. God will bring His righteousness to you, even to you. Do you want it? So come, and welcome, to Jesus Christ.
