It behooves us to make Jesus Christ the most important person in our life because He is Lord of all — and He says we’re acceptable, adequate, valuable, and forgivable. If you’re a follower of Christ, let this message penetrate your soul. If you’ve never opened your heart and life to Jesus, why not do it today?
To live an upright life is the fear of the Lord! Though our shortcomings are great, God’s grace is greater yet. The children of God are called to live a life of surrender to the will of God as revealed in the Word of God. When we fall short we simply and reverently acknowledge our sin, thank God for His forgiveness (secured by Christ on Calvary’s cross), turn from that particular sin, then get on with our life, our walk with God.
God doesn’t hold a grudge! As one pastor put it: “He doesn’t rub it in, he rubs it out! He doesn’t rehearse it, He releases it!” If God forgives me I should forgive me!
