Forgiveness That Lasts Forever
WHAT I BELIEVE AND WHY
For God so loved the world that He gave us His Only Son that Whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. (John chapter 3, verse 16, New Testament)
In order to share with you my testimony, this scripture would be the reason for which I believe.
NOW Faith is the substance of all hope, the evidence of what is not seen. (from the letter to the Hebrews from St. Paul, chapter 11, verse 1.)
In order to share with you my testimony, this scripture would be reason for peace and joy in my life.
I have encountered a lot of people in my lifetime who do not know how to forgive. It is important to incorporate it into their lives, just as you show approval for an individual. Love comes from the heart. But forgiveness comes from the soul. The Lord forgives only if you ask Him for it. The Lord forgives others in one's life, but only if you pray for them and put them into His hands. To forgive is to love.
Love holds no records of wrongdoing. ( The first letter to the Corinthians from St. Paul in chapter 13, verse 8.)
Being bold to do something out of the ordinary is always what I have done when it comes to my Christian thinking. I can truly say that I desire God in my life more than anything, and if one takes away God in my life, you take away my zeal for living. I forgive because it is a commandment. Faith in God's Holy Spirit is what ushers in the cleanup of the mess that is left behind. And no one, for sure, wants to be left behind. To believe in Jesus Christ is to bring His everlasting Love and forgiveness into Life. I will continually defend my place in His Glorious Kingdom only because I believe.
THE PURPOSE OF JESUS' DEATH
Bitterness only exists because the remembrance of the effect of a wrongdoing. Harboring the negative in our passionate thinking and vocalizing negativity in our everyday speech causes the staying power of sin in our lives. By confessing the existence of sin that we do in everyday life to God the Father, and professing to believe in Jesus His Son, acknowledging that He died for us on the wooded cross, then forgiveness is ours, and the true reason for living exists. Beginning over again occurs with accepting Salvation in Jesus Christ. But the works of our new faith only reaps the Joy of obedience and the practice of God's Word in every day life.
The Duties Of A Believer In Christ
Our new role as Christians can not be complete without some basic requirements in our actions. "Actions do speak louder than words". So Love one another, Praise God the Father daily. God's forgiveness is reciprocated by our actual forgiveness of others. Jesus said before He breathed His last, "Father Forgive them, they do not know what they do". It is so true! Most of the time we believe that " I didn't do anything wrong", when in fact we may have. Unfortunately, I testify right now that I am guilty of saying that.
Fasting from Sin is impossible, but fasting from lustful desires is possible, but it is the desire to know Him more that predestines the future of our spiritual existence in God's Kingdom.
So if you wish God to Bless, You must then Confess. Love one another By forgiving them As sister and brother. To be free of Sin seems absurd, But we are forgiven By the Power of His Word.
May all who reads this be blessed in Jesus' Name
It has meant a lot to me to tell these truths as my testimony. I can not hide what the Lord means the most to me.
