What Does God Do With My Sins?

* He lays them on His son, Jesus Christ. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” - Isa. 53:6.

 

* He forgives them. “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” - Eph. 1:7. 


* He cleanses them all away by the blood of Christ. “The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin.” - 1 John 1:7. 


* He blots them out as a thick cloud. “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and as a cloud thy sins; return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.” - Isa. 44:22. 


* He will remember them no more. “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” - Heb. 12:17.  


* He will not reckon our sins against us. “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” - Romans 4:8. 


* He blots out the proof against us, nailing it to His son's cross. “And you hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses: Blotting out the hand- writing of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross.” - Col. 2:13-14. 


“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” - Romans 6:23.

Ten Predictions 2020:

With all the problems the world is facing, it can be unsettling to the mind. Today, we share with you ten predictions that are still true.

 

* The BIBLE will still have all the answers.  

* PRAYER will still be the most powerful thing on earth. * The HOLY SPIRIT will still move.  

* GOD will still honor the praises of His people.   

* There will still be BIBLICAL preaching. 

* There will still be SINGING OF PRAISE to God.  

* GOD will still pour out blessings upon His people.     

* There will still be ROOM at the cross. 

* JESUS will still love you.   

* JESUS will still save the lost when they come to Him.


Isn't it wonderful to remember who is really in control and that “the Word of the Lord endures forever.” (I Peter 1:25).  


We hope you found this encouraging. Sometimes we need the reminder of just “WHO” is really in control.    

THREE TENSES

image32

  

Past Tense - God's Grace has appeared to all men (2:11).  


Present Tense - God's Grace instructs us to leave sin and live righteously (2-12) 


Future Tense - God's Grace causes us to look for Christ's coming (2:13). 

The Holy Alphabet

Whoever came up with this one must have had some Divine guidance! 


Although things are not perfect. 

Because of trial or pain. 

Continue in thanksgiving. 

Do not begin to blame. 

Even when the times are hard. 

Fierce winds are bound to blow. 

God is forever able. 

Hold on to what you know. 

Imagine life without His love. 

Joy would cease to be. 

Keep thanking Him for all things. 

Love imparts to thee. 

Move out of “Camp Complaining.” 

No weapon that is known 

On earth can yield the power 

Praise can do alone. 

Quit looking at the future. 

Redeem the time at hand. 

Start every day with worship. 

Thanks is a command. 

Until we see Him coming. 

Victorious in the sky. 

We'll, run the race with gratitude. 

Xalting God on high. 

Yes, there'll be some good times and also some bad. 

Zion waits in glory . . . where none are ever sad. 



                                  Thoughts: 

There is never an appropriate occasion to do wrong. 

How you choose to let God love you today determines how you will love others tomorrow.  

The world honors success; God honors faithfulness.
