WE remember, He does NOT!!!
And there is a cloud of witnesses about us both physical and supernatural…
Sin is dirty and foul – it is the opposite of all things holy. We cannot be joined with Christ when we are covered in the stench of unrighteousness. Without a savior, we would always be covered in our sins. However, the blood of Jesus can wash away our sins if we confess and seek forgiveness. This holy cleansing only comes from His mercy – it cannot come from anything we do. No matter how good we try to be, we receive this gift of cleansing simply because he is faithful and just to forgive us when we confess our sins.
And we pray:
Dear God, You have welcomed sinners to Your table and given us a place beside You only through Your mercy and grace. You forgive us when we cannot forgive ourselves. We know it is only through the sacrifice Your Son made that we are made clean of all our unrighteousness. Thank You for Your faithfulness and Love. Give us opportunities to share the truth of Your faithfulness and forgiveness with those who need to hear it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
