No Sin Too Big To Handle
Everyone, let me repeat that, EVERYONE has sin in their life. Everyone has sinned. How do you reconcile your sinful nature with the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ? Let me stop your thought process right there. I don't care what you have done. It does not matter. There is no sin, NO SIN, that Jesus can't help you through. Even YOU. You are loved, you are worthy, you are worth saving.
Ephesians 2:8-10 says:
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
You might think your sin is too big to save. You might think you are beyond help. Don't sell Jesus short. Do not tell Him what He can or can't do. God sent His OWN SON, Jesus, for this very reason. Think about that for a moment. Do you have a son? Do you know someone who has birthed a son. Imagine, just for a moment, giving that son up to hurt and shame for the purposes of saving a sinful society. He had to watch while His Son was beaten and bruised. He had to watch while His Son endured death. He loves us THAT much.
We are ALL sinners. We have been REDEEMED and SAVED through the shedding of Jesus' blood on that cross for OUR sins. That means you, me, everyone.
Romans 5:8-10 says:
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by His blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!"
Sorry. You are not exempt. It does not say "EVERYONE BUT YOU." It says we, all of us, were sinners, Jesus died, we were redeemed by His blood, and saved through Him. The end.
You say, "But I have done XXX." Where does it say, "You will be saved UNLESS XXX?" By saying this, you are telling Jesus He is incapable of reconciling your past. You are telling Him His blood shed meant nothing.

These are just a few examples for you.
If you CONFESS your sin to Jesus, and ask for forgiveness, it will be done. You will be forgiven. If you confess there is no way to salvation but through Jesus, you will be saved. You will be redeemed.
