Forgiveness. March 18
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. Hebrews 9:22
Forgiven has to be one of the most beautiful words we can ever hear. We have all felt the weight of a guilty conscience. And we know God hates and judges sin. Like Adam and Eve this can cause us to avoid God, either out of fear or shame or both. Thankfully as God came to the garden to find Adam and eve, so He has come to us through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. We can’t do good enough to earn our way back into oneness with God. So God himself thru the blood of His Son Jesus, made atonement for us. Just as the word says we are At-one-as it was ment to be. Without the atoning blood of Christ this would be impossible. Let’s rejoice, rest and find cleansing today thru our faith in what Jesus has done for us.
