“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to FORGIVE us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
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 indulgent as you wanted? But God is forgiving. So, what does that mean for us? Does it cause us to want to live a less sinful life; one more pleasing to God? Does the awareness of all the “overs” God gives us create a deep sense of gratitude evidenced by us being less sinful and more like Jesus? God FORGIVES US. What does that mean to us?
Lord Jesus, thank You for FORGIVING our sins. We pray we not take Your forgiveness lightly, but rather, commit to live more fully for You.
