Confession And The Forgiveness Of Sin

        "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

        If we confess our sins before God, then He will offer complete forgiveness at that very instant. His forgiveness comes with the purification of our souls. We simply need to accept that proposition as true. That is how we secure an objective basis for our assurance of salvation.

        If we can place enough trust in a park bench to support our body weight every time that we sit on one, then how much more are we able to place our trust in God and His work for forgiveness and redemption? God is our infallible support. In Him exists no deceit.

        The Apostle John describes in succinct terms how the atonement of Jesus Christ is applied to those who believe on His name for eternal life. It is applied to us on a day by day basis.

  1. Hello Jesse. If you haven't seen my response to your latest comment at my blog, rest assured that I intend to examine your blog as I have done for every other blog on my blogrolls. I think you can agree that simply adding a blog without doing so is unwise. But I must ask for patience as I have an really complicated schedule these days with limited time for blogging. I like checking out new blogs (new to me, anyway) and have no problem adding to my blogrolls after doing so. I don't demand perfect agreement, so there's no worries there. Simply be patient. Being you're young, I'm actually more inclined than I would otherwise be to cut you slack where I wouldn't for others. Stay tuned.
