I’m forgiven. Every day. Because, I do not walk a sinless life, I have to be. And, He freely gives it to me. Yet, many struggle still with this concept. How can the creator of the heavens and the earth, the author and finisher of our faith forgive a little me with dirty, rotten insides?
Because, He is the creator of the heavens and the earth, the author and finisher of our faith. And, He does whatever He pleases.
But, perhaps, a better answer is because He loves you and me. Since the day He created man, God has desired to walk in relationship with us all. And, it’s His desire for that relationship – and His immense love for us – that He so sweetly forgives us all.
He forgives all things.
He sacrificed His very own son to wipe away our sin.
I love ya. And, I’d maybe die for some of you. But, I sure as heck wouldn’t give up one of my youngins for any of you.
But He did. ‘Cause His love is a love that surpasses all knowledge.
Don’t let guilt grip you. Don’t let it hold you hostage. Know that you are a child of God cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. You are forgiven. And, oh, how you are so loved.
11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. 12 He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:11-12
Aren’t ya so glad?
