Anchoring Truths from God's Word

September 17, 2020

Forgiven

Jesus loved us so much that He took our place at Calvary to pay the price for all the world's sins. We serve an amazing God whose forgiveness never runs out. As humans, we might forgive someone once, but by the second or third time they do us wrong, we aren't so quick to forgive. On the other hand, God will forgive our sins when we confess them to Him and ask for His forgiveness (1 John 1:9). Not only will He forgive our sins, but He will also remember our sins no more (Hebrews 10:17). Psalm 103:12 says, "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." This doesn't give us a license to knowingly sin against God just because we can ask for His forgiveness later. There is a judgment day coming where you will answer for your sins. Don't let the devil bring up your past mistakes to try to drag you down. Remind him of his future, and that God has forgiven you and loves you.

Key Verse

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 1:3-7 (KJV)
