“But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn [yourselves], and live ye (Ezekiel 18:21, 32).”
I believe it is human nature for us to classify sin into varying degrees of wickedness–lying, robbery, adultery, assault, murder, mass murder, etc. Of course, all the while we are actually proclaiming that our sin is not as bad as their sin. But truly, the soul that sinneth, it shall die (Eze. 18:20). So… no matter who we are or what we’ve done (or not done), be sure our sin will find us out (Num 23:23). If we repent (not just feel sorry but turn away from sin and toward God), we will be restored to a right relationship Him. It is His desire that we remain in fellowship with Him; yet, it is our sin that breaks this fellowship. Turn and live. “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life (Rom. 6:23).” It is only through the free gift of salvation that we inherit eternal life. No matter who we are, we are beckoned to turn and live. No matter what we’ve done, again we’re invited to turn and live. Basically, no sin is too great that God will not forgive us when we ask and turn from our wicked ways. He is, indeed, a merciful God. “[It is of] the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. [They are] new every morning: great [is] thy faithfulness (Lam. 3:22-23).” Turn and live.
