If you, O Lord, were to keep track of sins, O Lord, who could stand before you?
Psalms 130:3 NET
Sin separates us from God. He is Holy and Righteous and we are full of everything that keeps us from Him.
Thank God that He sent His Son, Jesus to die on the cross, so we can be forgiven of all of our sins. And, be made right with the Father.
But on top of that, He doesn’t keep a record of what we’ve done wrong. Doing so would mean that He doesn’t completely forgive.
When you ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins, it is a total and complete forgiveness. No sin is left. No records are kept. No limits are placed on you.
Instead, you have the full ability to approach the Lord, being cleaned by the blood of the lamb.
Knowing this great thing that has happened to and for you, how do you respond to God?
Do you honor Him as a result, with your whole life? Or is He just someone you come back to when you have an issue?
God doesn’t want you to be separated from Him. That is evident in the high price He paid with the blood of His Son. So draw close to Him always. Honor and glorify Him with your whole life.
There is nothing more important!
Lord, thank You for forgiving all of my sin. Help me to show my gratitude by giving me the strength and peace to live boldly for You in this world.
