Your Sins Are Forgiven

“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”
Psalm 103:11-12 King James Version

I receive a lot of emails from people who are allowing satan to put guilt trips on them for their past sins and mistakes. They are still living in bondage to satan. I submit to you on the authority of the Word of God that if you have asked Jesus to forgive you for your sins and invited Him into your heart to be your personal Saviour, you are forgiven. Don’t let satan keep you in bondage. You have been set free through the precious atoning blood of our Saviour. We read in the Bible “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more” (Hebrews 8: 12).

The word “fear” in our Scripture verse does not mean to be afraid of God. It means that we should treat Him with the respect, honor and dignity that He deserves. We serve a Holy God and He and Jesus are to be exalted and praised. Our Heavenly Father is a merciful Father. He does not hold our past sins against us any longer and He never reminds us of them again. If our sins have been put under the precious blood of Jesus, our sins have been forgiven and forgotten!

It makes satan very happy if he can cause us to have doubts. We need to remember that satan is very sneaky. We can be on the mountain top of happiness, joy and peace. Everything is going wonderful in our lives. There are no crises or difficult situations in our lives when all of a sudden we feel the sharp arrows of satan in our backs. Once again, we have doubts because we have listened to that liar. We need to realize that satan is a liar.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8: 44). We should constantly be on guard against his vicious attacks. We read in the Bible “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5: 8).

Have you asked Jesus to forgive you for your sins and come into your heart and be your personal Saviour? If not, I urge you; I plead with you to say “yes” to Jesus before it is too late! If you have asked Jesus to forgive you and to come into your heart to be your personal Saviour, your sins are forgiven. You can walk victoriously in the freedom that Jesus has given you through His precious atoning blood which He shed for you on the cruel cross of Calvary.

There is a song that I used to sing in Sunday School that I love “If the devil doesn’t like it, he can sit on a tack.” Tell that sneaky devil to not only sit on a tack but to lie on a tack. Tell him that your sins are forgiven and forgotten and to leave you alone. You do not have to live a defeated life. Jesus has set you free from the bondage of satan. You have a choice to make. You can listen to satan and his lies or you can believe Jesus when He tells you that you are forgiven. Who are you listening to, Jesus or satan?
