Christ came to offer His life to pay the penalty for our sins. This is the promise of redemption!
If the burden of your sins has paralyzed you and frozen your heart with guilt and shame, claim the promise of forgiveness in 1 John 1:9.
Have you made peace with your past?
It’s been said that God is the God of a second chance. I question that. I believe God is the God of another chance, not just a second one.
If God says He forgets our sins, then why would you ever want to dwell on them?
Sometimes, we fail to forgive because we misunderstand what forgiveness really means.
We must stop resisting and rejoice in our Father’s blessing! It is His nature to bless us!
Would you trade something of immeasurable worth for something completely worthless? Probably not. But that is exactly what God did when He gave His one and only Son to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God.
Did you pray for yourself today? You should have. But, if you didn’t, the Bible says that Jesus did. In fact, consider the intensity of His prayer for you in this verse.

Jesus is pleading your case before the Father. What is He pleading in our behalf?
Good news! Who’s not interested in some good news for a change? In his book, How to Give Away Your Faith, author Paul Little says, “More flies are attracted by honey than vinegar.” His point was that how we present our faith has a lot to do with the response we receive.
