“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
What would you do if God wasn’t forgiving? Would you sin less? Or, would you quit trying to “be good” knowing it was impossible? Would you throw all attempts of righteousness out the door and be as sinfully indulging as you wanted? But God is forgiving. So, what does that mean for you? Does it cause you to want to live a less sinful life; one more pleasing to God? Does the awareness of all the “overs” God gives you create a deep sense of gratitude evidenced by you being less sinful and more like Jesus? God forgives you. What does that mean to you?
Lord Jesus, thank You for FORGIVING me of my sin. I pray I not take Your forgiveness lightly; but rather live a life that is increasingly pleasant to You.
