What does the Bible say about restoration of a believer who has sinned after his/her conversion?

How do you get restored when you feel like you have done so much wrong after you have accepted Christ, and you feel like it's hard to get back in right alignment?

Dear Brother or Sister in Christ, I would like to remind you that God's Word declares in Jer 3:14, "Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:"

And in Jer 3:22, "Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings." 

God only desires that you come to the Cross of Calvary and sincerely REPENT! For us to tell Him we are sorry, and to ask for forgiveness. To ask for His precious, free Blood to cover our sins and cleanse us. 

It is a sly dirty trick of the enemy to tell God's people that we have fallen too far from Grace to come back to God. If someone is trying to live a God Fearing life and DAILY going to the Cross for cleansing with Jesus' Blood, that Victorious Blood that has NEVER lost it's Power. 

No one can 'fall so far' that an Omnipresent, Omniscient, All-Powerful LORD Jesus Christ can't save Him.

As Believing Christians we need to pull up our spiritual boot straps and stop being defeated by the enemy! Through our LORD Jesus Christ we hold the Keys to the Kingdom of God! All we must do is bend our knees at the Cross of Calvary and use them!

Be Blessed,

Our God is the God of second chance. The whole of humanity thrived on second chance through mercy. Man fell in the garden yet God came back in the form of man to rescue the lost. The same mercy was extended to every man that ever walked with God. So seeking for His mercy and grace launched us to a new phase in our walk with God, He is gracious to forgive and forget when we repent and asked for forgiveness. God is ever faithful to open a new opportunity for a repented sinner.
