“Who I am in Christ – Meditations of Truth and Faith“
I am forgiven.
Everyday, I am thankful to Jesus Christ for setting me free from the terrible feeling of worthlessness.
Guilt and shame are heavy burdens to carry around through life. It’s like having chains around your feet dragging you down physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Before finding forgiveness, darkness and despair were the companions deep within my heart. On the outside, I smiled in attempts to hide the hopeless soul within me.
When I heard God’s love and His forgiveness are greater than anything I had ever done, I knew I had to have it.
1 John 1:9 (NKJV)
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Jesus forgave me. It was like the weight of the world lifted from my shoulders. Because of what Jesus did for me when He died on the cross, I can now live free of guilt and shame. God’s forgiveness has liberated my soul. Guilt and shame are no longer my companions.
Romans 8:1-2 (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.
You can be Forgiven, too!
God loves you yesterday, today, and forever. His love for you is greater than your guilt You see, Jesus loves you. He died for you even before you were born. He longs for you to run to him and ask for forgiveness. You must believe in him as the Son of God, ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you from all your sins. He will hear your cry, and He will answer you. Jesus will set you free from the power of sin. You can be forgiven, too!
