FROM THE HEART

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 New International Version                                    

This is a three part sequence.                                                                                                

First there is no trying to excuse or con Jehovah. We must admit to our sin with no excuses.

                                               

The second part is to repent of our sins. Repent means to ask for forgiveness and to stop committing the sin. Many times our sin is too great for us to conquer on our own which is why we need to ask the Holy Spirit to empower us to destroy the sin. Another part of repentance is to try to make right to any we have done wrong to.

The third part is the assurance that our sins are forgiven. Even if those offended refuse to forgive, our loving Father in Heaven assures us that He does forgive. In this way we do not allow others to hang the Damascenes Sword  of guilt over our heads. As well it blesses us with assurance that we are forgiven so we do not need to beat ourselves up over the incident.                                                                    

When thoughts of failures push their way into my consciousness, I let His total forgiveness dissolve my regrets and go on to praise Him who accepts us just as we are and lovingly works to make us more than we were. Ruth Bell Graham                                                                  

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our Healer) for the wonderful blessing of washing me clean of my filth when I repent with a sincere heart to You. I praise you in the name of the lamb whose innocent blood made it all possible Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
