Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/21/17

This week’s scripture is from Acts:

“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.”   (Acts 13:38)

He came that we might know Him; He sacrificed himself and bled and died that we might be forgiven for our sins and receive eternal life. We know that if we are faithful to confess our sins He will forgive us. Let us not hold back, but let us come humbly before the Lord and freely confess our sins. Let us remember to forgive those who have wronged us for He forgives us in the same measure as we forgive those who have sinned against us. If Jesus forgave those who killed him who are we to not forgive those who have wronged us? We must forgive. And let us not neglect to forgive ourselves for our sins as well, for who are we to not forgive ourselves for our wrongs when the Lord has forgiven us? Forgive and be forgiven. Trust in Him.

May you be blessed by the Lord’s forgiveness and mercy.
