Verse of the Day
“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12
Read or listen to today’s devotional from Our Daily Bread titled: Etch A Sketch Forgiveness.
God’s judgement is absolute. No one can live up to His judgement, save the Son, Jesus Christ. It is only through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross that God the Father can forgive me of my sins. When the Father looks upon my life, He no longer sees my sin and wrong doing. Instead, He sees a blanket of blood covering my life, given by His Son for the forgiveness of my sins. Christ’s blood covers me & my life, so that I may enter the kingdom of God, despite my sinful nature. Although I can never live up to the righteousness of God, in thanks for the gift Christ gave, I strive to live a life further away from sin and closer to the kingdom of God.
