Are You Forgiven?
"Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: Surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with the songs of deliverance." Selah. Psalm 32: 1-7.
Un confessed sins can cause our health to deteriorate and cause our” bones to wax old". When we confess our sins to God, we are set free like children again and our health improves. When they brought the crippled man to Jesus to be healed, Jesus said to him,"thy sins be forgiven, go in peace."
When the burden of guilt is lifted from off our shoulders, our mind and body is set free to function properly and keep us young and healthy.
Only by the shedding of blood, the bible tells us, can sin be purged. Christ came to accomplish this by shedding his blood for each of us. Have you received this precious gift? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb of God? Are you forgiven?
