Psalm 130:1-8 NIV
[1] Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; [2] Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. [3] If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? [4] But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. [5] I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. [6] I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. [7] Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. [8] He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.

Good Morning!

Jesus paid the price so that, even though we are all born into this world with sin in our hearts, we can stand before God with our sins washed away as white as snow.

Isaiah 1:18 NKJV
[18] “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

Isaiah 64:6 NKJV
[6] But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away.


God’s grace is abundant! He has given everyone the opportunity to have eternal life with Him. There’s just one thing we need to do — accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. When we do this, our life and our eternity is changed forever and ever!

Jesus’ Orders

We can’t live in our earthly bodies without sin. That is why Romans 5 tells us that even though sin still abounds in our lives, God’s grace abounds much more. He makes our unrighteousness righteous. He not only forgives us, but loves us dearly as His “chosen treasure” and “royal priesthood.” Jesus tells us to do two things, once you have accepted Him as your Savior: (1) Go and sin no more and (2) Go and bear fruit.

Romans 5:20-21 NKJV
[20] Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, [21] so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Peter 2:9 TPT
[9] But you are God’s chosen treasure-priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvelous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world.

John 8:10-11 NLT
[10] Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” [11] “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

John 15:16 NKJV
[16] You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

These are commands right out of the mouth of Jesus for all of us. As we tarry on in His footsteps, carrying our own cross for Him, we will never be perfect. Jesus doesn’t expect us to be perfect, as none of us can be. But we are forgiven and should live our lives in a constant state of humility, knowing that Jesus stands before the Father interceding for us continuously.

Romans 8:34 NKJV
[34] Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Proverbs 29:23 NKJV
[23] A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.

Final Destination

As we go through this pilgrimage on earth into our eternal destiny, heaven, we will sin and others will sin against us. But we are to forgive others just as Jesus forgives our sins. We cannot carry the baggage of unforgiveness in our lives. It will eat away at your very core and cause you to sin. Jesus gave us the example of how we should pray in Matthew 6:8-15. Read these verses often so that we can all stay in tune with how God wants us to live and move and have our being — in Him.

Matthew 6:12 TLB
[12] and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us.

Acts 17:28 NKJV
[28] for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’

Though we are all born with sin, God has made a way through the eternal sacrifice of Jesus, so that there is a way that we can all stand before God and be accepted as His own where He will tell us to enter into His kingdom my good and faithful servant.

Matthew 25:23 NKJV
[23] His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

I love you and am praying for you today!
