What a marvelous plan! God in His great love for us has made a way that we can have everlasting fellowship with Him. He created us with a free will meaning that we had the ability to choose to sin, to ignore Him, to completely rebel against Him. And yet in His great love for us He provided a way to be completely forgiven and born again by His Spirit. The Apostle John wrote, "I am writing to you who are God's children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus." God Himself said because of our repentance that He will never again remember our sins and lawless deeds. Paul wrote, "He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit." It was His will to be merciful to you and I. What then should be our response? Today thank Him, worship Him. Fall on your knees and let Him know how thankful you are for His forgiveness and mercy. Rise and rejoice in your freedom.
Dear Father, how incredible that you have totally forgiven and cleansed me. How magnificent your love and mercy has been toward me. I thank you. I praise you for the new life you gave me through your Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name, amen.
