Their Forgiveness Of Us

Their Forgiveness Of Us

Being published today and in coming days and weeks is a series of encouraging  articles based on “The Blessings and Joy We Receive From God and Jesus”. This is the second article done on this topic.

In our first article we discussed the great love of God and Jesus for us. In this one, we will see that their love is what caused them to provide a glorious opportunity for us to be forgiven of our sins! In the passages below, Paul makes it clear that we who were baptized to repent and become faithful disciples of Jesus are fully forgiven!

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.“(Romans 5:8-11)

“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead though the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”  (John 6:3-4)

Brothers and sisters, having been baptized into Christ to become his disciples, let us rejoice and be in peace, knowing that we are lovingly saved and forgiven throughout all of our lives in Christ!

In the passage below, we are once again insured of our forgiveness:

“How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!” (Hebrews 9:14)

Jesus lovingly shed his blood for us on the cross in order to take away our sins. Having been sincerely baptized into Christ, we are thus forgiven by what he did for us and by the love of God that sent him to do it. Let us thus be assured that we are therefore fully forgiven, and that we can thus joyfully and peacefully serve our loving God and Jesus throughout our lives!
