As the first phase of our 7 Promises Bible Study draws to a close, I thought ending with the word redemption seems most fitting. This first set of scripture centered around the idea that we are forgiven. God has sent us his only son Jesus to die for our sins. It is because of this that we are saved from all sin, error, and evil! How glorious it is that we have a Lord of Light!
As we wind down 2019 and approach 2020, I have a challenging question for you. In what ways are you testifying for God? Discover the definition of testify and how you can apply it to your new year!
The theme we are focused on lately in forgiveness, and that forgiveness could not have happened without Christ. I think the best way to thank God for his gift of forgiveness is to try and purpose our life in the image of Christ. This will always be a challenge, but isn't it worth it?
We all sin, but we must understand and acknowledge our faults in order for them to be removed from us. Yes, God can forgive our sins, but we can't stop there. This does not mean we can keep making the same mistakes over and over again. We must confess our sins!
We do not have to be consumed because of our sin, instead, let's be consumed by the love of our God!
I will do all I can to keep the awe of God and his mercy because I am forgiven.
