Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22).
We have a God who delights in mercy. He is more willing to forgive us than we are to ask forgiveness. Look at the cross and the unbelief will melt. It was he who told us to pray, ‘Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses.’ We need forgiveness as much as we need daily bread, even more so. And God offers to forgive us daily. Daily!
Believe that Christ’s forgiveness is free, available, and continual. Take it. Claim it. Confess and believe you’re forgiven. The word of God is the guarantee. Don’t wait for feelings. He said it, it is so. In Romans 4:5, God is called the one who ‘justifies the ungodly.’
Friend, are you a sinner? He wants to be a guest with you. He will receive you. He will justify you. You may claim it today. Make Christ your Saviour and your sins are forgiven.
