Hello Everyone 🙂
This post took some thought but after some thinking, I came up with a word and its verses
Drum roll pleased…
Ok, so this sounds interesting , but if you look at the picture above and read what it says, this is what it says:
When we confess our sins, he(Jesus) forgives us and will wipe that sin away as if nothing ever happened. We just need to ask.
How cool is that? Loads of people either do something wrong and think,” Oh, it will be fine. God knows and he will forgive me. Party time” Or “Oh dear. How can God forgive me for this? I’m such a failure. I think I’ll carry all my burdens,”
Both are wrong thoughts. While we should feel guilty for what we have done, we must be very quick to ask God to forgive us and he will do just that. Once we have done that, we should just take time to appreciate what Jesus did for us on the cross.
These two verses practically sum it up:
Luke5:8 and 10b
When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man…Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness
Challenge: Read Luke 22:54-62 and John 21. Thinking about how Judas Iscariot acted when he realised that what he had done to Jesus was wrong, FYI he killed himself, why did he and Peter, who denied him, acted differently when they realised what they had done to Jesus? Why didn’t Peter kill himself like Judas did? What did Peter have that Judas didn’t?
Tune later this week to find out 🙂
