GOD'S FORGIVENESS AND MERCY
In several of our nuggets we have spoken about the Lord calling us to holiness. It is His desire for us to have victory over sin-For our benefit and the benefit of those around us, and so that we reflect the character of Christ.
In the midst of talking about walking in holiness and living a sinless life, it is good to remind ourselves that it is His work, not ours. And to acknowledge that there are times that we fall short. Maybe many times for some of us. But praise God for His mercy and forgiveness. In this nugget we are sharing Bible verses that describe our Heavenly Father's mercy and forgiveness. So the next time the enemy reminds you of your failures, realize that maybe satan remembers your sins, but your Father has chosen to forget them.
"To the Lord our God belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him;
for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace,
"And His MERCY IS UPON GENERATION AFTER GENERATION
Toward those who fear Him.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need.
1 Peter 2:10
for you once were not a people, but now you are the people of God; you had not received MERCY, but now you have received MERCY.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
"Come now, and let us reason together,"
Says the Lord,
"Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 2:1
My little children, I am writing these things to you that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
To the world, you may just be somebody...but to somebody, you may be the world.
