I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"FORGIVENESS OF SIN" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
FORGIVENESS OF SIN
JUST THINK ABOUT THE SINS YOU HAVE COMMITTED THIS WEEK. DO YOU THINK GOD IS CHARGING THOSE SINS AGAINST YOU? WELL, HE IS NOT. 1ST JOHN 2:2 TELLS US THIS ABOUT JESUS, "And He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."
WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND IS THAT WHEN WE DO SIN, WE NEED ASK FOR FORGIVENESS OF THOSE SINS AND GOD WILL TAKE THE FORGIVENESS THAT IS ALREADY IN OUR BORN AGAIN SPIRITS AND RELEASE IT IN OUR FLESH. THIS REMOVES THE DEVIL'S HOLD ON US.
THERE ARE SO MANY SCRIPTURES THAT TELL US THAT IF WE BELIEVE, WE WILL BE SAVED. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO BELIEVE. IN EPHESIANS 6:19, PAUL SAYS "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel."
HE GOES ON TO TELL US IN 1ST CORINTHIANS 15:3-4 WHAT THE MYSTERY IS, "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." THIS IS THE WHOLE GOSPEL AND NOTHING NEEDS TO BE ADDED TO IT.
ANY RELIGION THAT TRIED TO ADD SOMETHING TO THIS IS SAYING THAT JESUS DID NOT DO IT ALL. WE DON'T HAVE TO HELP HIM IN ANY WAY. WE JUST HAVE TO RECEIVE HIS WORD AS TRUTH AND BELIEVE IT.
ONE LAST COMMENT...I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAY THAT IF ALL OUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN THEN WE CAN JUST GO OUT AND SIN WHENEVER WE WANT TO. IF THESE PEOPLE SAY THEY ARE BORN AGAIN, I HAVE MY DOUBTS. A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT WANT TO SIN, IF FOR NO OTHER REASON, BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID FOR US.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
