His Unfailing Love

 
“His unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our rebellious acts as far away from us as the east is from the west.” Psalm 103:11-12.

Do you sometimes find it difficult to believe that-
you have total forgiveness for your sins in Jesus Christ?
 
Intellectually you believe it.
But how about deep within your heart?

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.

They tried to push through the crowd to Jesus, but they couldn’t reach him.
 
So they went up to the roof, took off some tiles, and lowered the sick man down into the crowd, still on his mat, right in front of Jesus.
 
Seeing their faith-
Jesus said to the man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

“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.”

 
Then Jesus turned to the paralyzed man and said-
“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-

Jesus Christ, through His death on the cross,
– has set us free,
free from sin,
– and free from the bondage of guilt that sin and the Law bring.

Maybe you are finding it difficult to believe in your heart that your sin has been paid for.

 
Perhaps you are thinking, “I have lustful thoughts toward another person.”
Or, “I’ve been taking the Lord’s name in vain. God won’t forgive that, will He?”

The fact is-
He has forgiven you if you have placed your trust in Christ. 
 
You simply need to claim His forgiveness and believe His promise.
And what a promise it 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.
