When we claim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, all our sins are forgiven. Although that is true, sometimes we allow people or situations in our lives to cause us to wonder. Cause us to doubt. Cause us to question if we truly are forgiven for our sins.
Especially the REALLY big ones we don’t want anyone to know about. When that happens, we should ask our self, who will we listen to?
Sometimes we allow Satan to step into our minds and tell us we are guilty. We allow him to tell us we will never be forgiven. We listen to the accuser’s condemnation and feel unworthy. We forget to listen to God tell us we are his Beloved. Purchased at the expense of his precious Son’s life.
All of Satan’s lies and accusations are hogwash. Pure and simple. We need to stop listening to him. We need to listen to the truth of who we are in Jesus. We are redeemed and forgiven by the only one whose opinion matters.
Jesus knows us inside and out. He knows each and every single time we sin. He knows when we truly repent.
Jesus is the only one qualified to judge us, and he tells us we are no longer condemned. Why? Because he took our guilt, our shame, our very sin upon his perfect sinless self.
God’s only son paid the debt we owed but could never repay with his precious blood on the cross of Calvary. Through Christ’s sacrifice we are forgiven. End of argument.
If we are forgiven by the only one whose opinion matters, the Supreme Judge, then we are forgiven.
So if we find ourselves asking who will we listen to, the voice of condemnation or the voice of grace, we need to listen to the voice of grace every time.
