Day 16: Simply Forgiven


It is so SIMPLE that it is so hard to BELIEVE~

You are FORGIVEN.

But GOD I did this. But GOD I did that.

BUT you are still FORGIVEN.

"If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, HE is faithful

& just [true to HIS own nature and promises], & will forgive our sins & cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with

HIS will & purpose]" (I John 1:9 AMP)

But GOD I can't FORGIVE myself.

But GOD~

"The LORD does not delay [as though HE were unable to act]

& is not slow about HIS promise, as some count slowness,

but is [extraordinarily] patient toward you,

not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9 AMP)

But GOD is it really that SIMPLE?

"I, even I, am HE who blots out your transgressions for MY own sake;

& I will not remember your sins" (Isaiah 43:25)

So if GOD says so & JESUS made it so~

"HE made CHRIST who knew no sin to [judicially] be sin on our behalf,

so that in HIM we would become the righteousness of

GOD [that is, we would be made acceptable to HIM & placed

in a right relationship with HIM by HIS gracious lovingkindness]" (2 Corinthians 5:21 AMP)

Why doesn't everyone SIMPLY BELIEVE & RECEIVE FORGIVENESS,

like the guilty criminal on the cross right next to JESUS~

"We are suffering justly, because we are getting what we deserve

for what we have done; but this MAN has done nothing wrong.”  

And he was saying, “JESUS, [please] remember me when YOU come into YOUR kingdom!”

 JESUS said to him, “I assure you & most solemnly say to you,

today you will be with ME in Paradise” (Luke 23:41-43 AMP).

Oh it is so very SIMPLE that it is so hard to BELIEVE,

but why not

SIMPLY RECEIVE FORGIVENESS

&

SIMPLY thank GOD for SIMPLY FORGIVING~

"Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise HIS holy name.

Praise the LORD, my soul, & forget not all his benefits—

 WHO forgives all your sins & heals all your diseases,

 WHO redeems your life from the pit & crowns you with love and compassion,

 WHO satisfies your desires with good things

so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s" (Psalm 103:1-5 NIV).

Just because FORGIVENESS is a free gift

with no questions asked,

why not want

JESUS

"MORE THAN ANYTHING" (listen to the song below).
