How many times do we ask God to forgive us, only to leave His presence to continue to live in a state of bondage? Yes, we take our burdens to Him but instead of leaving them, with pick them back up and take them with us.
When God forgives, He “forgives”…
Some examples from scripture would be when Jesus healed and forgave, He said to “go and tell”….Who do we tell?
“Others”....anyone we come in contact with. Its simple…just “go and tell”..
Now, what about that sin that’s in our lives that society tells us is “unforgivable”?
Did Jesus not forgive the prostitute? (Luke 7:37-48)
Did Jesus not forgive the adulteress? (John 8:11)
Does Jesus then, not forgive us? (Psalm 103:12)
We say, we know that God has forgiven us, but we still must live out the consequences of our sin. Yes, this is true, however, a consequence of sin is “never” to refrain from “telling”… “Go tell….” Those are Jesus’ exact words, no matter the language, it is still “go tell”..
Matthew 28:1-20… Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
