WORD FOR TODAY
WORD FOR TODAY. CJM
(1 John 1:9) “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Many sincere Christians are carrying a very heavy burden of guilt for past sins. Satan wants to keep a person condemned. Often individuals need help in understanding that God has forgiven their past sins and that He cleanses from all unrighteousness. And the BEAUTY of it is that when God forgives our sins He REMOVES them as far from us as the east is from the west (Psalms 103:12) “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” Satan wants people to continue to remember their shortcomings and to dwell upon them; because when they do this, they cannot move forward for God. It is sometimes difficult for people to fully accept and understand that God has forgiven. Also there are times when an individual may have difficulty forgiving himself. Forgiveness must be received and the sin put in the past and forgotten.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
