16/21 Days of Prayer
EPHESIANS 1:7 (NKJV)
“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”
You are forgiven. No, really I want you to hear that again…. You are forgiven. When you first become a Christian it is one of the most freeing things to find out about God’s grace, but something begins to happen the longer we are Christians. We start thinking that we have to earn God’s forgiveness. When we mess up, we beat ourselves up because we should know better by now. The longer we are Christians we forget that forgiveness doesn’t come because we are good but because Jesus is good. Stop beating yourself up for the mistake you made last night, last week, or ten years ago.
After all, you are forgiven.
Jesus, thank you for your grace and your mercy. Thank you for forgiving me when I mess up. Today I ask you to forgive me for ______________________ and I receive your forgiveness now. Amen.
