Are Your Sins Forgiven?

October 21, 2018

1 John 1:7 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.

Forgiveness

March 26, 2018

Have you ever done something or said something you are truly sorry for? Maybe you hurt someone you love and need to ask forgiveness, but do not want to open that wound again. The Bible clearly states we need to forgive one another. In fact if a brother (another Christian) has hurt you, you are to go to them and ask their forgiveness. Somehow in our human minds that seems unfair, but think about our relationship to God. We have hurt Him many times, before salvation and especially after we have been saved. Disobedience, apathy and many other things too numerous to mention, and yet He in His love for us has forgiven us for ALL our sins. Let us show our love to Him by forgiving one another.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

Christian Blessings

February 28, 2018

It is a blessing to be a Christian in many ways. We know the Lord Jesus and he will never leave us or forsake us. Then we have assurance of Heaven if we have trusted Him as our Savior. Our sins are forgiven. Also, another blessing is fellowship with other Christians. We meet another Christian for the first time and immediately there is a bond of friendship. If you have not accepted Christ, do it today and you can join in the many blessings that are too numerous to tell you here.

1 John 1:7 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.

How To Love The Unlovable 

August 26, 2017

Do you have a neighbor or a family member that is not very lovable? Sometimes certain people are hard to love. Love is a choice. One thing that helps us to love the unlovable is prayer and forgiveness. Pray for that person, not just once but daily. Not that the Lord will bring something bad on them but that God will give YOU the love of Christ for that person. It works. It is hard to harbor ill feelings toward a person you are praying for. 
Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

God’s Forgiveness

September 28, 2016

“When God forgives He forgets. He buries our sins in the sea and puts the sign on the shore saying, “No Fishing Allowed.” Corrie ten Boom

Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Forgiveness

“Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart.” Corrie ten Boom

Jesus said, Matthew 6:14-15. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

 

What’s New?

April 17, 2016

Sunday begins a new week, it is a new day, an opportunity to start a new life in Jesus for those who have never had their sins forgiven. God gives us a new heart when we accept Jesus as our Savior. He turns darkness to light, sadness to joy, and sinner to Saint. 

Everyday is a new day to draw closer to God and be more like Him. Are we perfect? No, but we are forgiven.

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Colossians 3:10

Creator

April 15, 2016

Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made by the Great Creator, God himself. As I sit by the bedside of my very ill spouse I can view with wonder how our bodies react to heal themselves. The doctors have even given God the Glory for the resilience in the body. We have seen many small miracles.

Just think, when you cut your finger or maybe break a bone in your arm or leg then a few weeks later everything is back to normal. You may have a scar from the cut or a slight limp from the break but you are back to being able to function normally.

Sin is like that. When we sin and ask forgiveness, God forgives completely, however, there may be a “scar”. A broken marriage leaves children with only one parent in the home, theft may bring jail time, drinking may cause illness or death and on it goes. Are we forgiven? Absolutely! God not only created our wonderful body He made a way to be forgiven of all our sins through trusting in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

What Are You Living For?

October 17, 2015

“Are the things you are living for…worth Christ dying for?” Adrian Rogers

Recently in conversation, several people have said they need to get rid of “stuff” they have accumulated over the years. It is so easy to allow small things to overtake space in our homes or even our workplace.

What about the “suff” we allow to overtake our hearts and minds? Bad habits, little sins, unforgiveness, anger, sinful movies or tv, anything not pleasing to God. Just like we need to clean out our homes we need to clean out our hearts.

Jesus died for all our sins and He is the heart cleaner. If you are a Christian, ask for His forgiveness and allow Him through the Holy Spirit to take away the “stuff” in your life.

If you have never become a Christian, the first thing is to admit to Jesus your sin, ask Him to forgive you. Jesus died on the cross, shead His precious blood so you could be saved, then He rose again on the third day. If you believe that with all your heart and invite Him to be your Savior, He promises that your sins will be forgiven.

Ephesians 4:31-32  Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
