"I Just Can’t Get Over It!"
Text: Revelation 1:4-6
"John to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which
is, and which was, and which is to come; and
from the seven Spirits which are before his
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful
witness, and the first begotten of the dead,
and the prince of the kings of the earth.
Unto him that loved us, and washed us from
our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God
and his Father; to him be glory and dominion
for ever and ever. Amen."
In the book of Revelation, Chapter 2, vs.
1-7, we read about the church of Ephesus.
Now, this was a hard working body of believers.
They would not tolerate heresy, but they had
one major flaw-they had left their first love
for God. They didn’t love Him as they once
did. They were not being as faithful to Him
as they once were. They began to do what some
husbands and wives sometimes do, they begin to
take each other for granted, and the depth of
their feelings for each other grew more and
I want to speak to you this morning about why
I just can’t get over it! I really mean that!
God is so good, and His love is so wonderful,
if sinners only knew how wonderful they would
fall at His feet in repentance as quickly as
they could; but alas, Satan has blinded them,
and their hearts have become callous, and hard,
and they cannot seem to realize the wonder of
I. I JUST CAN’T GET OVER THE FACT THAT JESUS LOVES
He loves you, too! To know Him, and the power
of His resurrection is the greatest experience
in life. It is the greatest love affair in
life, for no love comes anywhere near equality
with God’s love.
God does not love us because we are good, but
"while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
We would never have loved Him, had He not first
loved us. We love Him because He first loved
us, and gave His Son on Calvary’s cross for us.
We did not seek Him, but He found us, and He
saved us by His grace. All we, like sheep, went
astray, but God came looking for us, and He did
not cease searching until He found us, and brought
us home, into His kingdom. I rejoice in being
part of the family of God. Don’t you? I’ve
been cleansed by the blood, adopted into the
Family of God, forgiven all my sins, and made
an heir of all that belongs to God! Wow! If
that doesn’t put you on shouting ground, nothing
The kindness and mercy of God is ours for the
taking. He offers, we must receive it, by faith.
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath
bestowed upon us, that we should be called the
sons of God."
It is time for us to re-realize just who we are,
and why we are. Bless His wonderful Name!
II.Secondly, I JUST CAN’T GET OVER THE FACT THAT
ALL MY SINS ARE FORGIVEN FOR CHRIST’S SAKE.
As the Psalmist wrote-"Blessed is he whose
transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered."
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord doth not
impute sin." Ps. 32:1-2
He took my sin, and bestowed upon me His right-
eousness. He took my sorrow and saddness, and
replaced it with His joy! He took my lonliness
and emptiness, and gave me His love.
Love does not keep a record of wrongs. Check
the list in heaven, and no sins are recorded
against the redeemed. There is no condemnation
to those who are in Christ, who walk not after
the flesh, but after the Spirit.
III. Thirdly, I JUST CAN’T GET OVER BEING RESCUED FROM
A LITERAL, BURNING HELL.
Yes, it is real, and it is hot! But even worse
that that, it is seperation forever from the
presence of a Holy, Righteous, and Loving God.
This is the eteral fate of all the unrepentant,
and its horror is beyong human comprehension.
It is darkess, and pain, and lonliness, and
saddness, and guilt and shame. It will be
a place where roses never bloom, and the sun
never shines, a place where laughter is never
heard, and peace is never known.
Oh, my friend, escape Hell. Flee from the
wrath to come! Come to Jesus!
IV. Fourthly, I JUST CAN’T GET OVER THE GLORY OF
HEAVEN THAT AWAITS ME!
It is all because I am a born-again child of
God, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is not because of any merit of my own.
