Hebrews 11:17,18 (ESV)
“I will remember their sins and their lawless deeds no more.” Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.
Jesus was the ultimate offering. He paid the price for our sin and lawless deeds when He shed His blood and gave up His life on the cross. Therefore, there is no longer any offering to compensate for sin. There is nothing to be redeemed, nothing to be bought or won. It’s already done!
Earning forgiveness and proving ourselves by right living so that God will be pleased, is a concept we’ve learned by listening to lies of the enemy. God’s Kingdom doesn’t operate this way.
If you have found yourself trying to earn back your place in right standing with God, please stop. You are only putting unnecessary pressure on yourself and driving a wedge between you and the One you want to be close to.
Receive the FREE GIFT of forgiveness, and move on. Don’t allow the tactics that the enemy uses to dictate your response to your loving Father. You are loved!
