WALKING IN FORGIVENESS

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

1 John 1:7

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

KJV

Today before going to take my shower in the morning I was talking with a friend who said to “ask God for forgiveness” and I replied immediately,” I am walking in forgiveness”. I discovered that God put those words in my mouth.

I pray God will help us understand that before you open your mouth to ask for forgiveness God has already forgiven you. It is not your confession that cleanses you from all unrighteousness but the blood. If you make any confessions it is because you realize you are in a relationship with a person who cares and not because you are being condemned. in Matt 6:14, Mark 11:25, Jesus made it very clear that God forgives us because we accept and understand His grace; we prove this by forgiving others who have wronged us thereby manifesting the character of God; and this is the definition of walking in the light. Those who walk in the light are those who get to be constantly cleansed by the blood of Jesus (see 1 john 1:7).

If you come to a point in your Christian life where you recognize that Jesus constantly advocates for you because of your faith in Him, you will live a victorious life.

When we talk about confessing our sins, it is about being open with God. Confession in the New Testament is being honest about your failures.

Go into today walking in the forgiveness-grace consciousness and never again in the sin-guilt consciousness.

NOTE: walking in Forgiveness does not lead to a lifestyle of sin; it leads to a life of glorifying the lord Jesus.

PRAYER: I thank you lord for taking my place on the cross. I thank you for forgiving me even before I open my mouth in prayers. I pray you give me grace to be more like you daily. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
