As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Even though you have become a Christian do you still beat yourself up over the wicked lifestyle that you participated in before you came to Christ?
Have you repented of them ( Repent means admitting what you did was wrong – especially to those you have wronged if possible . Then apologizing for it. After that you must ask for forgiveness. ) . Then stop beating yourself up.
Jesus’ motto is ; ‘ Once forgiven , always forgiven. “
So , if Jesus does not beat you up why would you waste your time doing it?
There is no sin that cannot be forgiven when you repent. Joseph- Anthony: Green
“Blessed [forgiven, refreshed by God’s grace] are those who mourn [over their sins and repent], for they will be comforted [when the burden of sin is lifted]. Matthew 5:4 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Sometimes even though Jehovah has forgiven your sins , you must still pay retribution to those whom you have wronged. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Sometimes even though you have repented you must still pay retribution for your sins to society . So for example , say you got drunk , got in an accident and crippled someone , you must still pay retribution to those you have injured and justifiably do prison time.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for sanctifying me ( which means making you holy ) through the horrifying bloody sacrifice of Your most beloved son Jesus Christ. I am eternally grateful for this unwarranted gift and worship You in whose blood my filthy sins were cleansed Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
