YOU ARE FORGIVEN

YOU ARE FORGIVEN.
One of the greatest realities of the faith we profess is that we are living a life that has been finished. We are only acting out a script. We are actors of a divine drama carefully written by God himself. We must realise that God only begins things when he has completed them. This reminds me of the statement Jesus Christ made at calvary. He said 'It is finished'. God already finished and perfected our lives ever before he initaited our existence. One of the beautiful things about our lives is that we have been FORGIVEN.When we ask for forgiveness of our sinful actions and deeds, we are not trying to get forgiveness from God.In fact the reason we ask for forgiveness is not because we want to get forgiveness rather its because we have alreeady been forgiven.

John, the Apostle exhorts us saying I write unto you, little children, because your sins are FORGIVEN you for his name's sake.Peradventure you're feeling like God wouldn't forgive you for the wrong things you've done or you doubt whether he has actually forgiven you, just know this today 'God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Your sins are FORGIVEN YOU,for his Name sake.

Another stunning truth is that we are forgiven not necessarily because we deserve it,but because God has a name and a character to protect.He has a reputation to keep and uphold. Our God is a God of integrity and can never compromise his standards. He forgives us for His Name sake, and what is his name: Its Jesus Christ. he forgives us for the sake of His Only Begotten Son, he forgives us because he looks at the blood of Jesus which was shed upon us abundantly.

The charge today is to keep this truth always in your heart lest the devil gains a ground of accusation against you. The devil has no ground of accusation in the life ofsomeone whomis not condemned.However, this is not a license to sin, rather it is a cause for reverence and respect for what God has done for us in Christ Jesus.YOU ARE FORGIVEN of ALL your wrongs.
CENTRAL TRUTH:Don't try to get what you already have.You've received remission and justification.You were paid for in FULL.

FOCUS SCRIPTURE:1 JOHN 2:12.

CONFESSION:
God never paid in part for me.
He paid the FULL PRICE,
with what Christ did at calvary all my sins have been remmitted.
I am not trying to get forgiveness.
I am already fforgiven
Thank you Jesus.
