If We Say That We Have No Sin, We Deceive Ourselves, And The Truth Is Not In Us. If We Confess Our Sins, God Is Faithful And Just To Forgive Us Our Sins And To Cleanse Us From All Unrighteousness. If We Say That We Have Not Sinned, We Make God A Liar, And His Word Is Not In Us.
1 John 1:8-10
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.”
We tend to think about grace pouring down over us as a onetime event. If it was a onetime event, we are in trouble. You see, the grace of God is something that we need every day. We are told that the mercy of the Lord endures forever. That means it will never grow too small or be worn out. As we look at the life of Peter, we see a man who fell and then got up. There is a lesson in that for us. We often count ourselves out when the Lord has not counted us out. There is no one beyond the reach of His grace. If this includes Peter and his denials, it includes us and our misbehaviours. Though we struggle and though we sometimes fail, we can live in this knowledge. We have 24/7 access to His love and forgiveness. We live in the grip of His grace.
Isaiah 1:18 “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.” NKJV.
As Sons and Daughters of God, we can be forgiven of all our mistakes!
Thank You for Your grace, and may I run to Your throne of grace often. Please forgive me of everything that hinders me in running the race. I pray this in Jesus Christ Name, Amen.
