Forgiven

Who is sinful? We could be deceived to think that we are without sin especially when we have not committed obvious and notorious sins as murder and theft. But the Bible says that all of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

“… for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God sent to be an atoning sacrifice through faith in his blood, for a demonstration of his righteousness through the passing over of prior sins, in God’s forberance.”

– Romans 3:23-25 (WEB)

No one is not guilty of sin. All of us are sinful. It does not take for anyone to commit obvious sins to label one as sinful. We are all by nature sinful and no one can forgive us, cleanse us, and redeem us from the darkness of sin but Jesus Christ alone who became the atoning sacrifice for all of us through the blood He shed on the cross.

Once we believe in Jesus Christ and we surrender our life to Him and He becomes the Lord of our life, we are freely saved through His grace and we receive forgiveness from all of our sins. What freedom and joy of being set free from the sins that entangle us. What peace we attain through Jesus Christ our Lord. What blessedness we gain when our sins are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is covered.”

– Psalms 32:1 (WEB)
What joy to be forgiven
By my Savior who was strickened.
What peace I have been given
With glorious hope of heaven!

What blessedness I gained
From my Lord who was slained.
Grace which covered all blame
It washed away all my shame!

What great love and salvation,
In Jesus, I’m a new creation.
This life I live in consecration
To Jesus I give my devotion!

Being forgiven by God is blessedness of life. Earthly matters do not account for much. They are all temporary. But being forgiven and saved from our sins are of eternal worth.

“I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself up for me.

– Galatians 2:20 (WEB)
