Receiving Forgiveness

When Jesus forgives you; you are completely forgiven.

“Jesus straightened up and asked her, ‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’”
“‘No one, sir,’ she said.”
“‘Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now and leave your life of sin.’” John 8:10-11 (NIV)

Jesus died to pay your sin debt in full. He provided for the total and comprehensive forgiveness of your sin. As a result, you are now free to live the abundant life that Jesus saved you for.

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2 (NIV)

The activity of the Holy Spirit has set you free from the activity of sin and death. The operation of the Holy Spirit has set you free from the operation of sin and death. You are free to reign in this life by allowing Jesus to reign in your life.

Have you received God’s forgiveness by trusting in Christ alone for salvation? Are you walking in the freedom Christ provides? Pray and ask God to reveal any fraction of sin in your life so that you can immediately confess it and claim His forgiveness. You are forgiven because Christ took God’s wrath for your sin. Yes! He loves you that much. And He loves every person you will interact with today, that much! Mercy came running like a prisoner set free!

Pursuing God,
