FORGIVEN AND FREE

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”        Psalm 103:8 NIV

 

Have you ever lied to your parents; lied to your friends; gossiped; cheated; intentionally hurt someone else; indulged in sexual sin? We can either deny or confirm our guilt. We are reminded of the words of King David who said, “I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me” (Psalm 51:3 NIV). When we are made so aware of our sin, with no means of finding a resolution to the sin that is ever before us, a deep sense of inadequacy and guilt develops. How do we find a resolution to this? It comes when we truly understand the love of God, in Jesus Christ, through the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit. The interesting fact is that so many of us have head knowledge about the love of God in Christ, but it has never penetrated our hearts. So often we think: what do I have to do, what do I have to avoid to make sure that God never stops loving me, to make sure that I am okay? We need to be reminded that we never did anything to make God start loving us. We never did anything to make Him stop. This is why Jesus died: to show us that in Him, our guilt can be forgiven, once and for all, and that we really do belong to Him forever. When we allow the Holy Spirit to bring this wonderful, amazing truth home, into our hearts, a weight will be lifted knowing that we are forgiven and free; walking in love rather than worry.

 

PRAYER THOUGHT

PRAYER FOR TODAY
