Stop Asking For Forgiveness
You’ve probably heard it.
You are in some sort of prayer meeting. Maybe you are just praying with someone.
Maybe you are prone to do it.
Most of us have probably done it on more than one, if not many, occasions.
We ask God for forgiveness.
I’m going to burst your bubble right now. You don’t have to ask Him to forgive you anymore.
Not if Christ is your Savior.
If you are truly a believer and follower of Christ, you are as forgiven now as at the moment of salvation.
Commit a sin? Forgiven. You don’t have to ask Him to forgive you. It’s already done.
You want to confess it? Go ahead.
Repent of it? Absolutely. Turn away from it.
Ask for forgiveness? No need. You are forgiven.
I know. That goes against our nature. It goes against what we believe. It just doesn’t sound right.
I understand. It’s taken me a while to figure it out. I forget it sometimes.
That doesn’t matter.
Are you forgiven?
