Gift of Forgiveness

Ephesians 4:29-32

    

When we yield to temptation, one of the first things we wonder is if God will continue to love us. Knowing that He is still extending His forgiveness to us brings comfort and reassurance. Forgiveness is the cornerstone to the message of salvation. God loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for us so that we might have eternal forgiveness (John 3:16).
    

Through His life and death, Jesus did for us what we could not do for ourselves: He forgave all our sin–past, present, and future. Once the cleansing blood of Christ is applied to our lives, then sin’s stain is removed. The same is true for all who continue to come to the Lord.
    

God’s forgiveness requires two elements: sin that needs forgiving and Someone who will forgive the offender. Jesus is your advocate before the Father (1 John 2:1).
    

When the enemy accuses you of wrong doing, Jesus steps forward and proclaims His faithful, eternal love for you.
    

There is nothing you can do that is beyond His ability to forgive. He knows all about you life – all your failures and heartaches – and still he chooses to love you. Once His forgiveness is installed, He restores your life and brings hope to every area.
    

There is no power on earth or in heaven stronger than His love for you. In this you can rejoice!
