Right from the beginning of creation, God want us to be blessed and multiply but sins has been one of the greatest obstacles that prevent the blessings of God from manifesting in the lives of the children of God. It was sin that separated us from God and the garden of Eden. Man was sent out from the garden of Eden but still sin could not be stopped because the heart of man is very strong.
God tried all He could but no way He could stop man from sinning because of His great love for mankind, He sent Jesus Christ to come and pay a great prize for us despite the fact that we were far from God which He did not like.
Today, are christians living in the level God desire for us from the beginning? The answer is absolutely NO. Why, because we feel that Jesus has paid the price so we are no more sinners.
The bible says that, If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleans us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a lair and His word is not in us – 1 John 1 : 8 – 10. Forgiveness is in His hand if we confess our sins to Him.
The question is, do you accept Him as your Lord and personal Savior? Do you accept that you are a sinner? Do you confess your sins to him even the sins of your ancestors? Do you ask Him to forgive you? Even after the prize Jesus Christ paid for you, do you still accept that you are a sinner? I feel that these questions are very important for us to ask ourselves because we feel that we are no more sinners because of the sacrifice Jesus Christ paid for us.
If you have not confess your sins to Him or you don’t accept that you are a sinner, brethren, it is not too late for you to do that. First, accept Him as your Lord and personal savior no matter the level of sin that you might have committed, He is faithful and just to forgive you and write your name in the book of life. This is not the issue of I have been a christian for 20, 30, 40 or 50 years but rather the acceptance in your heart.
Prayer: Everlasting Father, I give You all the glory for Your love and grace upon our lives. Thank You for the breath of life You give to us everyday. Thank You for sending Your only Son, Jesus Christ to come and die for us despite our great sins. We accept You as our Lord and personal Savior. Forgive us in anyway we have sinned against You knowingly or unknowingly. Wash us clean with the blood of Jesus Christ so that we will be as white as snow. Forgive the sins of our ancestors. Give us the grace to know that You are the source of our lives in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
