1 John 1:9, If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
I’ve been teaching a series on Sundays that covers one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. In Romans 8:31 Apostle Paul says, “If God is for us, who can be against us.”
What an incredible thought! The God who created the universe and everything in it -is on our side. Literally, He is for us!
He is always for us! Even when we stumble, fall and sin. Read these words from the Bible, found in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” When we get off track in our lives, we just simply go to God and ask for His forgiveness, and He is faithful to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. So, if you are carrying a burden of sinful behavior or a checkered past, run to God and not from God! Part of God being for us means He stands ready to forgive us. As you make your journey today, don’t forget that God is for you, and that includes forgiving you!
Think about that and have a blessed day!
