Some Good News

1 John 1-9Brothers, this is good news. Our forgiveness doesn’t depend on how we feel about it. If we have genuinely confessed our sins to God, he is faithful. The weight of this good news is on Christ’s atoning work and God’s promise… not on your feelings.

That’s good news because sometimes we can beat ourselves up for past sins. But God doesn’t want us to walk in shame and guilt… especially when he’s provided such a wonderful salvation that offers forgiveness.

Neither does he want us to continue sinning, and so the blood of Christ also does the work of cleansing us from present sins in our lives. God is good indeed.

Read 1 John 1:5 – 1 John 2:2 for the context.

Walk in the Light Brothers,
