1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (period)
The Lord forgives, as we are to forgive others. Therefore, we are forgiven!!! But for sin, like for every action there is a reaction… there is a consequence. We reap what we sow, more than we sow, later than we sow. Let me explain… If I tell you my hurt in private and you speak what I have given you in confidence to another… I shall by the grace of God, forgive you. As for trusting you, that is another matter.
Lord, let us wear the gift You have given us. Transform us by and to Your righteousness. May we always breathe in Your Holiness, because we are called to be holy for You are Holy! May each day be the day that my response time to Your name, Your call, be quickened. My heart’s desire is to answer on the first ring. And as the Lord has spoke over me… “Stop striving, and breathe ME!” “It is not about you. It’s about ME! I AM Grace!”
Let us not be caught up in the matters (or manner) of this world but focus on what matters most… And we cry JESUS!
