CHRIST, OUR ANSWER FOR SIN
Daily Word - May.01.2019
~~ 1 John 2: 1-6, 9-14. TPT
“You are my dear children, and I write these things to you so that you won’t sin. But if anyone does sin, we continually have a forgiving Redeemer who is face-to-face with the Father: Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
“Here’s how we can be sure that we’ve truly come to know God:if we keep His commands.
“If someone claims, ‘I have come to know God by experience',yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony and the truth finds no place in him. But the love of God will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word.
“We can be sure that we’ve truly come to live in intimacy with God, not just by saying, ‘I am intimate with God,’ but by walking in the footsteps of Jesus.
“… Anyone who says, ‘I am in the light,’ while holding hatred in his heart toward a fellow believer is still in the darkness. But the one who truly loves a fellow believer lives in the light, and there is nothing in him that will cause someone else to stumble.
"But whoever hates a fellow believer lives in the darkness— stumbling around in the dark with no clue where he is going, for he is blinded by the darkness.
“I remind you, dear children: your sins have been permanently removed because of the power of his name.
“I remind you, fathers and mothers: you have a relationship with the One who has existed from the beginning.
“And I remind you, young people: you have defeated the Evil One.”
~~ Sometimes, we just need to be “reminded.” So I encourage you to read and remember what Christ has done for You! He has already died in your stead. He has already forgiven you of your sins! Just love Him, receive His forgiveness (Father, forgive them; they know not what they are doing.)... and let His love permeate your life, today. ~ Pastor Sheliah
