Forgiveness: Part 3

Ephesians 1:7
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins,
 in accordance with the riches of God's grace."

Many people walking around today don't truly understand that they are forgiven.

And I'm not talking about unsaved people. 
I'm talking about those that profess to be saved. 

They believe they have to confess daily.
They believe that they're only forgiven for their past sins. 

But the truth is that forgiveness is an ongoing, forever and ever thing!
It's even a past, present, and future thing!
And it all takes place in that one defining moment of salvation. 

Why do we make it so complicated?

When we get saved, we are forever made clean. 
Jesus took care of it on the cross. Once and for all!

Isaiah 43:25:
“I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake 
and will never think of them again."
Once we grasp what He did for us we can't help but be changed. 
We've been forgiven and our sins have been forgotten!

No more shame and guilt. 
No more condemnation.
No more!

Accepting His forgiveness of our sins is the only pathway to true FREEDOM!

Understanding that we don't have to constantly ask Him to forgive us 
is the key to getting out from under shame, guilt and condemnation.

Why are we forgiven?
Because God loves us. 
Plain and simple.
He loves us so much that He sent His son to die for us.
Jesus is the answer. (John 3:16)

How well do you know this revelation- truth?
Is it heart knowledge or head knowledge?

Cause we can't live the same anymore once we grasp it! 

And no-one is exempt from this eternal forgiveness. 
Just believe and receive!
Yes.He saves us. 

Anyone. Everyone. 
For anything and everything. 
We only have to ask Him once. 

Then we get to spend the rest of our lives giving thanks 
for this priceless gift of forgiveness!
