1 John 1:9-10 ESV

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

There is nothing worse than living with guilt and condemnation in our lives. It blinds us and robs us of power to move forward and bless others. While we cannot go back and change the past, we can change how it keeps us defeated and unable to move forward. That’s why Jesus died on the cross for us. To pay the price for our failures, our guilt and our past. Don’t live another day feeling condemned. Ask God for forgiveness and let Jesus lead you in freedom and a new way to live.

Prayer: God, I thank you that I can be forgiven in you. Start a new way to live as you free me from my past sins. I fully confess that I have sinned and ask for your mercy and grace to bring healing instead of pain and grow to live in a way that will bless those around me.
