No Guilt, All glory: Accept God’s Forgiveness! Part Two.
“He has not dealt with us according to our sins or repaid us according to our iniquities.” Psalm 103:10
Isaiah 1:18 reads, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.” This verse from the Bible speaks to the power and beauty of God’s forgiveness. When we sin, we may feel as though we are stained with guilt and shame. But through faith in Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven and made clean.
God desires us to come to Him with our sins and be cleansed. He does not want us to live in guilt and shame that lead to condemnation, but to come to Him with a humble heart and receive His forgiveness. When we come to Him in faith, we are given a fresh start and can begin to walk in the newness of life. Remember, there is no guilt too great for God to forgive. His love is infinite, and He desires to forgive us and restore our relationship with Him. When we come to Him with a repentant heart, He will wipe away our sins and make us clean.
Psalm 130:7 says, “Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.”
God’s forgiveness is a great and mighty thing. It is a gift we can receive no matter what we have done. When we come to Him in faith, we will be washed through Jesus’s blood, clothed in His righteousness, and made worthy to stand before Him. Praise God for His great grace and incredible forgiveness! On the other hand, though, we are also not to take the grace of God and turn it into licentiousness. Even though Grace is a free gift from God and unmerited favor, we must be careful not to misuse the grace of God. It is not a license to sin. We are still responsible for our actions. Romans 6:1 says, “… Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?” The answer is capital NO!
However, if you believe in God’s grace, you should repent because God’s Grace is Christ, our Redeemer. Jesus paid the penalty for our sins when He died on the cross. Through Christ, we can see that our God is not a God of condemnation but rather a God of mercy full of love and ready to forgive. This is why we must repent through faith in Jesus Christ and accept God’s forgiveness and grace. Amen. Ephesians 1:7 says, In Christ, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. Amen.
1. Proverbs 17:9; Thank you, Jesus, for covering all my offenses and giving me life. I am so grateful for your help and guidance in my life today. I am blessed to know you, Jesus.
2. Oh Lord, cause me to triumph over the satanic detention of sin and release all the blessings my adversaries have stolen from me because of past sin in Jesus’ name. Amen.
