The Forgiveness of Sin   1 comment

Mark 2, 10

1.  What is sin?  Missing the mark, debt, lawlessness, disobedience, trespass, fault, defeat, impiousness, disharmony.

2.  The need of forgiveness.

(1)  All have sinned.

(2)  Constant sense of guilt.

No peace without it, nor heaven.  The only escape from one’s sins.

3.  What is forgiveness?  Forgive, remit, take away, cover up, blot out, destroy, wash away, cleanse, remember no more.

(1)  Removes not all the consequences of it.

(2)  Removes the penalty.

(3)  Restoration to the family & favor of God.

(4)  A new heart, aversion to sin.

(5)  God again trusts us.

What a blessed experience this!

4.  Conditions of forgiveness.

(1)  Repentance, the forsaking of sin.

(2)  Confession of sin, covering up nothing.

(3)  Forgive others–Lord’s Prayer.

All, all must be forsaken for Him.

5.  Forgiveness comes through Jesus.

(1)  He inspires us with faith in God’s love, his coming proves it.

(2)  His atonement makes it safe morally.  God does not ignore sin by so doing, is righteous in it.

Are your sins forgiven?
