Shadow Of A Doubt

Shadow Of A Doubt…

There were a number of ministers of the Gospel in prison for their faith under Communist rule. One of the younger pastors was troubled by his sins and confessed them to an older minister.

This older minister replied: “You have indeed sinned”. And you will undoubtedly sin again. But there’s one sin you must never commit. Never commit the sin of forgetting that no matter how great your sin is, the love of God is greater still to forgive it.

It was that counsel, which focused not on the pastor’s sin, but on the greatness of the grace of God that helped to set him free. As it is written, “The grace of God leads us to repentance.”

The point is that the point is not us, or even our sins. The point is the love of God is so great that it washes away all of our sins.

You too, whatever you’re going through; you will undoubtedly disappoint and grieve God, but never commit this one sin – never forget that no matter what your sin, the love of God will be there for you, and will be greater still than all your sins.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Memorize this: “No matter how great my sin is, the love of God is greater still to forgive it.” Now go throughout your day living in the grace of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
