Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 03/13/16

This week’s scripture is from 1 John:

jesus_white“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”   (1 John 1:9)

Even though we have come to the Lord through the blood of Jesus Christ, and we have repented of our sins and trespasses, God knows that we are not perfect, and that as children we continue to stumble and fall as we learn to walk out our salvation. Yet the Lord is faithful and true, and He loves us dearly, for even now the Son of God sits at the right hand of the Father ever making intercession for the saints.

Let us come before our Father boldly and confess our sins for He will forgive us and cleanse us if we humble ourselves before His mercy and grace. If we harbor anything against anyone, let us forgive them as the Lord forgave us, for He will forgive us as we forgive others, and let us also remember to forgive ourselves for it is wrong to not forgive in us what He has forgiven in us. Come, let us bow our hearts before Him.

May the blood of Christ cleanse you as you bow your heart before Him.
