We are forgiven

Jesus is all we need. We reign in life through Jesus. We will reign with life and in the power of life.

God called death "the last enemy" because He hates death. The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus. We have the same life that God lives by. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Eternal life does not mean living forever; it refers to the quality of life. Abba Father, I receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness through Jesus.

We need to receive abundance of grace especially when we sin. When sin increases, grace abounds much more. We find abundance of grace every day. The devil will do his best to prevent us from knowing that we have abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness. Do not let the devil win. God's grace is stronger than sin. God's grace purifies everything it touches. Everything Jesus touches becomes glorified, sanctified and made beautiful. When we come in touch with Jesus, He raises us.

Righteousness is a gift to us. It is free to us but paid for by the blood of Jesus. When life flows abundantly in our lives, we become glorified. We possess righteousness apart from our deeds. We are truly blessed.

Blessed are those who lawless deeds are forgiven and whose sins are covered. Righteousness encompasses sins forgiven. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin. 2000 years ago, God saw our sins. He took all our sins and put them on Jesus who came as the Lamb of God to take away our sins. God unleashed His holy wrath, righteous indignation and vengeance on the body of Jesus until every sin was punished. Because our sins have been punished, God cannot impute sin to us today - He has already done it to Jesus.

Right believing leads to right living. Believing that our sins are forgiven will not make us want to sin more; it will make us reign in life. When we love the Lord, we will want to seek His presence.

God saw all our sins being borne by Jesus. Let us live under the sense of forgiveness especially when we fail. We are forgiven completely and eternally.

God looks at us and God says we are forgiven. The penalty (that is, sickness, disease, poverty, bad things happening, etc) has also been remitted. The greatest blessings of the gospel of Jesus is the forgiveness of sins. The source or root problem of everything can be traced back to condemnation and guilt. Our hearts should be at rest because our sins have been forgiven.

Jesus is sad when we do not believe that we are forgiven. He came to preach, to proclaim liberty, to recover sight and to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. Abba Father, I am blessed because all my sins have been forgiven. When God forgives us, He sends our sins away.

Forgiveness means that someone has paid for it. Why are some people unforgiving? They have no sense that they have themselves been forgiven and that is why they act with bitterness and unforgiveness. God does not have to look to our past to determine our future. God can give us a brand new future.

If we really believe that we are forgiven, we will be happy, peaceful and joyful. Our sins have been sent away to the body of Jesus. What goes out by the back door, more will come through the front door. God wants us to be forgiving like Jesus. There is forgiveness with the Lord. When we realise that we are forgiven, we truly fear the Lord.

Whoever we forgive, we break the power of sin in their lives. If God forgives us, who are we not to forgive ourselves? Let us be at peace with ourselves. Jesus has come to proclaim that our sins are sent away and that is why we have liberty.

The main ingredient of anointing is the sense of forgiveness. When we sense that we are forgiven, we will forgive others. Once we have the Holy Spirit, we have authority to remit sins and to retain sins - make the right choice today.
