The amazing thing about God’s memory is not the amount He can remember but the amount He chooses to forget! When we confess, God chooses to remember our sins no more.
As a Christian you have moved from darkness to light. You have been rescued from the gutter, had a ring put on your finger, a robe around your shoulders. You have moved from being a beggar to becoming royalty. To sin is to return, if only be it for a short time, to being aContinue reading “From Darkness to Light”
When we are in Christ we are no longer sinners but saints! We may be saints who sin but we are saints nonetheless. If we continue to live as if we are still sinners then we are missing out on so much that God is wanting to do in our lives.
Every act of wrongdoing can be forgiven but the consequences of that act may never be undone and may echo into eternity.

You’ve heard it said “Hate the sin but love the sinner” but I believe that Jesus teaches us to love the sinner and concentrate on dealing with the sin that is in our own lives. If we focus less on the sins of others and more on eradicating the sin in our own lives weContinue reading “Love the Sinner”
