We've all experienced a certain feeling: the one that keeps you up past midnight and it makes you wonder if others know what you’ve done. We all know the unpleasant feeling of guilt. No matter what has happened, big or small, God’s Forgiveness can be given, all we have to do is ask.
I’m thankful for God’s Forgiveness
Oswald Chambers said, “Forgiveness is the divine miracle of grace; it cost God the Cross of Jesus Christ before He could forgive sin and remain a holy God.” While we have access to forgiveness, we need to remember while grace covers our sin, it doesn’t give us a free ticket to continue in it.
God's Forgiveness Had a Price
Sometimes, we have even felt guilty for something that we have not even done. I remember when Jamie attended third grade at the local school for a few months. The classes went to the Police Department and over to the Court. That afternoon, he told me about the trip and that they went into the Court and met the Judge. While he was there, he said that a feeling of guilt came over him and that he had not done anything wrong. I told him, that God may have been showing him what it feels like when you sin. Because of that feeling, Jamie said he was going to work hard on not sinning.
As a Child of God – WE ARE FORGIVEN
In I John 1:9, the Bible tells us if we confess our sins to God, he will forgive and cleanse us. . It’s nice to know we don’t have to carry around our burden of sin. All we have to do is confess it, and ask God to forgive it. I'm thankful for this promise.
