The Forgiveness of Christ

Daily Christian Devotionalby Max Lucado

The dilemma was:  “I know the Bible says I’m forgiven.  But my conscience says I’m not!”

If this question hits home… If you haven’t accepted God’s forgiveness, you’re doomed to live in fear.  And no pill or pep talk can set you at ease.  Am I right?  You may deaden the fear, but you can’t remove it.  Only God’s grace can do that!

Have you accepted the forgiveness of Christ?  If not, do it!  The Bible says “if we confess our sins, God is faithful–not just to forgive us, but He cleanses us from all unrighteousness! 1 John 1:9?

Make it your simple prayer:  Dear Father, I need forgiveness.  I admit I’ve turned away from you.  Forgive me, please.  I place my soul in Your hands and I trust in your grace.  Through Jesus, I pray. Amen.

Now!  Live forgiven!

    Once the forgiveness is received we become the new-born babes. The news would be on the front pages of the News blocks throughout in Heaven. ‘There will be great joy among the Angels and there would be great celebrations, as there on Earth, born Princes and Princesses for the Royalty-The King of Kings of the Universe.’
    Thank you for this inspiring devotional.
    God bless you and keep you.
