"Jesus is everything"

I'm not doing a December roundup of the year's best posts, but this may really be the essay of the year, at least for me: Glen Scrivener writes that sinning really isn't the worse thing. Here's the opening:
Oh it’s bad. It’s very bad. It’s murdering your Maker. It’s cheating on your Lover. It’s grieving His Spirit. It’s tearing apart your soul. It’s bad. Bad, bad, bad.

But not receiving forgiveness is far worse. Failure to accept the grace of Jesus dwarfs all other sins in its monstrosity. To refuse the vulnerable humility of God; to trample on the Lamb and blaspheme His Spirit as they offer blood-bought mercy and cleansing - this is unspeakable evil. It’s the reason people perish eternally.
Wow. The whole essay, by the way, lives up to that rather attention-getting opening.
