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 NIV
Faithfulness is one of many attributes that God reveals in His Word about Himself. Being faithful is synonymous with truth. God cannot lie. He is all good and we can be assured that because of who He is that we can believe what He says.
When we come to Him with a repentant heart, He is always ready to forgive, it’s His nature. This is like a breath of fresh air to find this out when you are in need of a Savior.
I remember when I was searching for Jesus, not knowing that in reality God was drawing me to Him. I began searching because I had a knowing that I needed Him. I had an overwhelming need to confess my sins. When I did this I had a sense of God’s forgiveness flow into my spirit and all I felt was His love and acceptance. Because of God’s faithfulness to forgive we can be assured of having eternal life!
Every time I feel a nudge from God that what I said or did doesn’t line up with His Word, I immediately ask for His forgiveness and I know from reading His Word that He is always faithful to forgive. And what’s even better than that, He remembers my sin no more and puts them as far away from Him as the east is from the west!
1. If you are feeling a “ nudge” to come to God today, now is the time! The Bible says, today is the day of salvation!
2. Thank God today for how He has been faithful to forgive you.
3. The Bible says we must forgive others because He has forgiven us, who can you forgive today?
I thank you Father for your faithfulness to forgive my sins! Without You my life would have no meaning. You are everything to me! It brings me great joy to know that You forgive and forget! I pray that You continue to help me sin less and less until I see You in Your glory, Amen.
