I Am Forgiven of All Sin

Daily God Walk for Saturday, October 8, 2011

 When you were dead in your sins and in the un-circumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away nailing it to the cross. – Colossians 2:13-14

 Can you remember when you were dead to spiritual things and sin reigned in your life? People would mention God, or Jesus, to you and you would either smile benignly, or you might just turn away because nothing they said reached you. You might say, or just think, “I’m quite fine just the way I am thank you.” But you knew you weren’t fine. You were fighting a losing battle trying to find lasting peace and joy, but you weren’t about to admit it.

Then one day, the light came on. As the word about Christ was shared Holy Spirit began to open your spiritual eyes and you began to see. Suddenly you realized that the light you thought you had was so dim that you couldn’t even call it light, and when the light of Christ was shined upon it you could clearly see that it was not light at all but the darkness of sin.

Faith was born in your heart as you heard the word of God with your inner person. Holy Spirit came in and showed you the sin and darkness inside you and you were given the opportunity to receive the everlasting light with is everlasting life.

At that moment we who were dead in sin became alive in Christ. He forgave us our sins and canceled the debt we owed him because of our sin.

Apostle Paul writes to the church at Ephesus, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding” (Ephesians 1:7-8).

Forgiveness of our sins, all of our sins, is given to us by the riches of God’s grace. And he didn’t give us grace stingily, or in sparse portions; no, he gave us grace lavishly because he knew we would need it throughout our journey of faith. Hallelujah!

 Prayer: Thank you Lord for the grace of forgiveness. Amen.
