To move beyond Sin we must first look at ourselves
1. All of us have sinned! There is no one righteous! No not one! Romans 3
Scripture is clear that because of our sin, missing the mark that God set for us, by not following His commands, not loving the way we should, that we have sinned. I am a sinner and so are you!
2. The punishment for sin is separation from God! He is holy and cannot be around sin.
3. That is why He sent Jesus! To become the bridge- the connector, the protector, the cleaner- Because of Him we have forgiveness of sins.
Praise God that He has wiped the slate clean!
If you are a Christian He has told us that:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9
Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. Hebrews 8:12
In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace. Ephesians 1:17
Because of Jesus there is forgiveness!
This is the good news!
We are forgiven!
We don’t deserve it!
But we are forgiven!
Father, thank you for your unbelievable gift of forgiveness!
Your grace is amazing.
