Another truth that many Christians seem to “forget” is that they have absolute, complete and unconditional forgiveness from God for all their sin.
There is a wave of wrong thinking in the church that tells us that we have to do something to be forgiven; we have to perform good works in order to receive forgiveness from God.
This is just not true.
You are forgiven, you have already been forgiven because of the performance of Jesus, because of His shed blood (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossian 1 v 14).
And the wonderful truth us that you have already been forgiven for all the sin you will commit in the future!
Now this is not a licence to sin of course, as sin has earthly consequences for you, your family and your friends.
But whatever you do wrong, whoever you hurt, you have to realise that you have already been forgiven and then move on.
God does not want you grovelling and begging for forgiveness; this actually shows that you cannot righty divide the Word, not realising what Jesus has already done for you.
Asking for forgiveness is not a sign of humility, it is a sign of arrogance and pride, thinking that you can do something yourself to achieve your forgiveness.
You are already forgiven because of Jesus and the shedding of His blood.
Thank Him for your forgiveness and enjoy your forgiveness.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you that I have already been forgiven for all my sin because of the shed blood of Jesus”.
Ephesians 1 v 7…..In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of this grace
