Redeemed and Forgiven!

Blessed is the one whose sin the LORD does not count against them
and in whose spirit is no deceit. Psalm 32:2

who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24

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 as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18

Do you believe in the forgiveness of sin? Some people carry burdens for a long time. Even Christians carry guilt for many years. They believe God for healing and yet when it comes to the forgiveness of sins, however, they find it difficult to believe that God forgive all their sins (past, present and future). In reality, forgiveness is God's nature. The forgiveness of sin is the very reason why Christ came. I think is is vital that you and I remember that Christ died for our salvation from eternal death. When we accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, we are forever saved from eternal condemnation. We are forgiven. It is done. We serve a remarkably loving God who choose to forgive us each time we sin against Him as long as we recognize we are sinners and need forgiveness, confess our sins and repent, and also forgive others. It is a pretty good deal. It is a win/win situation. Even professing believers forget at times the true nature of God. Our God forgives. Friend listen, whatever you have done in your life,however horrible and shameful it was, God would like to simply take it away and wipe it away. There is absolutely no need to carry any burdens with you. You can actually come boldly to the throne of grace and give them all to your loving and forgiven Father. His mercies are new every morning. You can start anew right now. It will not count yesterday against you. We are forgiven, hallelujah!

Listen, there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. There is no wall between you and God. The only existing barrier is the one you build yourself. Jesus Christ died to break down the wall. You are forgiven. There is no more shame. You are forever an accepted child of God. Listen, this is actually great news. You and I are going to go to heaven someday. Meanwhile, we are waiting patiently holding a one-way ticket, until such day comes. It is a done deal. The forgiveness which you and I have received through Jesus Christ is eternal. We cannot lose it. God will not take it away. If that make you want to shout I do not know what else would. You are forgiven. Hallelujah!

Dear friend Christ blood covers all your sins, even those which cause great embarrassment. When you accept what He did on the cross, then you will be able to accept His forgiveness for everything and you will be able to forgive yourself.
What sin are you struggling with? What have you done years ago and yet unable to find peace? What is your stronghold? Is it adultery? Is it abortion? Is it anger? Is it fornication? Is it drunkenness? Do you have a deceiving tongue? The blood of Jesus can set you free. Release it all to God. Receive His forgiveness and be free!

Father God I accept your forgiveness for all of my sins (past, present and future) in Jesus name. Amen.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.1 John 1:9

Praise the Lord!
