Jesus says: "Come unto Me, and I will give you rest."
As I watched this video, and listened to the song, I thought all sinners,-(no matter where they are in their sinful life)- need to see their sin is an offense to God. Surely the Gospel is good news for the sinner, and Jesus will receive any sinner. But every sinner must come to Him in "repentance" and faith.
When Peter was with Jesus on the boat fishing, and Jesus tells him to cast your net on the other side, and Peter brings in an incredible catch, Peter's heart is broken, and Simon Peter says, "Depart from me Lord. I am unworthy of You."
This is the heart every sinner needs, and then God will welcome this once soul that was under His great wrath into His arms and life forever and ever. Amen.
My point here is that Satan is subtle, and he comes as an angel of light. The devil has schemed and lied and developed a culture in our day of:
"You don't need to repent, Jesus loves you, and He begs you to come to Him and make Him stop weeping."
That's not the Lord of Scripture, and not our Lord who is in heaven, and who rules with righteousness and power, and demands sinners to repent.
Repentance is essential, and we need to know that.
