“GOD, You know my foolishness, and my guilty acts are not hidden from You.”

1 JOHN 1:9
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

LUKE 24:47
“…and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in His Name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”

We can all try to hide behind the facade of perfection even though we are seen as equally sinful in the eyes of GOD. We try to hide just like Adam & Eve, but GOD knows it well and sees all. We believe the lies that GOD would not want us because of foolish choices we’ve made over and over again. If that were true then why would He set a plan in motion since the fall of Adam in the garden of Eden to redeem mankind? GOD knows us and all we’ve done and still looks upon us so endearingly, compassionately and mercifully. Knowing this about the LORD should help us turn back in REPENTANCE and SEEK His forgiveness and grace. 

Our wrongs can never outweigh His love thanks to JESUS and His immeasurable gift of sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection so we can be cleansed, free, restored and united with the FATHER. We need to walk in obedience as a life of gratitude for His lavished gift of salvation through faith in His Son, JESUS CHRIST.

ABBA GOD, thank You for demonstrating Your great love for lost humanity. Thank You that in CHRIST, You have made a way for a sinner like me to recognize, renounce and repent of all my sins, and receive forgiveness and salvation through faith in JESUS CHRIST.

Thank You for loving me. In the gracious Name of JESUS. Amen.

Gratefully Forgiven,
Pastor Wally & Sister Mattie
