Do you sometimes find it difficult to believe that-
– you have total forgiveness for your sins in Jesus Christ?
Imagine yourself in the crowd as this story takes place as recorded in the Book of Luke:
Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a sleeping mat.
“Who does this man think he is?” the Pharisees and teachers of religious law said to each other. “This is blasphemy! Who but God can forgive sins?”
Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he asked them, “Why do you think this is blasphemy? Is it easier to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven’ or ‘Get up and walk’? I will prove that I, the Son of Man, have the authority on earth to forgive sins.”
“Stand up, take your mat, and go on home, because you are healed!” Luke 5:18-24.
What a marvelous illustration of God’s willingness to forgive.
God’s holy Word tells us that-
– free from sin,
Maybe you are finding it difficult to believe in your heart that your sin has been paid for.
The fact is-
It became yours the moment you believed in Jesus Christ as your Saviour and as an act of your will received Him by faith into your life as your Lord and Master.
