Receive forgiveness, not condemnation

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness –1 John 1:9

Every single day of our lives we need forgiveness. The Holy Spirit sets off the alarm in our hearts to recognize sin, and He gives us the power of the blood of Jesus to continuously cleanse us from sin and keep us in right standing with God.

But if we are overcome with condemnation, we can be certain its is not from God. He sent Jesus to die for us–to pay the price for our sins. Jesus boer our sin and condemnation on the cross(see Isaiah 53)

When God breaks the yoke of sin from us, He removes the guilt too. He is faithful and just to forgive all our sins and to continually cleanse us from all unrighteousness

The devil knows that condemnation and shame keep us from approaching God in prayer so we can receive forgiveness and enjoy intimate fellowship with Him.

Feeling bad about ourselves or believing that God is angry with us only separates us from His presence. He will never leave you, so don’t withdraw from Him because of condemnation. Receive His forgiveness and walk with Him.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
