Thought For Today - October 24
Blessed is he whose sins are forgiven.
Oh! how blessed is the one whose sins are forgiven, whose iniquities are remembered no more! How it blesses my heart and soul to know that there is forgiveness with God! If God should hold grudges, as it were, and mark our iniquities, who should stand? "There is none righteous, no not one." Romans 3:10 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God with the exception of one, and that one person, our blessed Lord and Savior was perfect in all his ways and he who was sinless himself, bore all our sin and shame on the cross when he died for us; but praise God! He rose again the third day, proving that he was God and that God had accepted his sacrifice of himself as the propitiation for all our sins, for as many as will receive it by faith, there is forgiveness with God for all our foolishness when we bow before him, acknowledging our folly and ask for his mercy to be bestowed upon us.
Weary sinner, come to the foot of the cross and see Jesus dying in your place. Let the drops of his blood fall upon you by faith, and realize that divine blood was shed for you, And that because of the price that was paid, you are valuable to God. Then by faith visit the empty tomb and see that it is indeed empty: that he is not here but was raised for our justification, and because he lives, be sure that all of us who have put our trust in him shall live also.
Wandering prodigal, far from home, far from the Father's fellowship which you once knew, come home. There is forgiveness with God. Come back to the fold, come apart from the world, . Our Father is ready to kill the fatted calf and put a ring on your finger and clothe you with his righteousness. Oh yes! Thank God, there is forgiveness with God.
"If thou Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope." Psalm 130: 3-5.
