How many times will God accept us back?
I've strayed so many times from Him and returned to Him.
I became so close to Him at one stage only to willingly let myself stray further and further away.
I'm not talking about simple sins.... I mean REALLY bad sins... the kind that people in the Old Testament got stoned for!!!
So how many times will He forgive me, when I keep willfully commiting the same sins over and over. Some times I don't even care.
How can He ever forgive me again and again... when in the OT they didn't even get a second chance?
I don't think His forgiveness works like that! You can't sin then repent, then sin again (even worse) then repent again over and over.... It's a cycle that has to end.
How can He forgive me after I was sooo close to HIm and repented with all my heart before.. How can He forgive me now that I've strayed again .. after tasting His Grace. I've gone further astray then before.
I've promised Him so many times that "from today I will change and try harder" but I never keep it up.
