Forgiveness

One of the most astonishing and liberating truths we can embrace is that God totally forgives our sins. However do we actually believe this truth? I guess many Christians would say that intellectually they agree with this. Do we though really truly believe this in our hearts?

I don’t know about you but sometimes I have wrestled with doubts of whether or not God’s forgiveness applied to me. Strangely, I don’t doubt that God can forgive others! I enjoy reading and hearing testimonies of how in the depths of sin people have met with God and received his forgiveness. Yet for some reason it’s my own forgiveness that I have struggled with.

Nevertheless, despite doubts and struggles the truth is God has forgiven my sins in Christ Jesus. There is nothing that I can do to earn forgiveness. God has offered me this most wonderful, liberating and life changing gift. It is freely given to me if I will accept it. Who would not want this gift: the forgiveness of sins and the promise of new life in Christ.

It does not matter if you think you are not good enough. None of us are! If salvation was based on our own goodness then there is no hope for anyone. God’s forgiveness is available. Are you going to ask Him for it?
