But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. | 1 John 1:9 (NLT)
If we confess our sins, he is Faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness (NIV)
We are not able to overcome sin without turning to Christ.
The amazing truth is God loves us so much that he never gives up on us and will carry us to completion to be with him for eternity.
When Jesus died on the cross, he paid for our sins - past, present and future.
What amazing love! Too hard for human hearts to fully understand.
We were born with a sinful nature separated from God but by faith in Christ Jesus our sins are forgiven, we are cleansed by the blood of Jesus, made one with Christ and brought back into fellowship with God.
We are then given the right to call almighty God ‘Abba father’.
Jesus paid the price for our sin his death made us a new creation in Christ.
We have the Holy Spirit dwelling in our hearts to help us till Christ returns.
Sin in our life is a barrier that can break fellowship with God but if we confess our sin God is faithful and forgives and nothing can separate us from God in Christ Jesus.
When I think of my sinful heart and how I so easily sin I thank God for his grace. I was lost with no hope.
The price Jesus paid the love he showed causes me to praise him and rejoice in him.
This joy is not limited to a feeling or what we are experiencing in life’s seasons this joy comes when we fully grasp what we have in Christ the hope of eternity!
My chains are gone I've been set free my God, my saviour has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
