I write to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.
1 John 2:12
Many people think that forgiveness is a basic teaching, that it is something you learn when you are a new believer and then you progress to more “complex” truths in God’s Word.
My friend, I submit to you that there is nothing basic about having a deep and abiding revelation of forgiveness. In fact, I believe that if you want to live the Christ-life and walk in the fullness of His divine provision, you need to meditate on His forgiveness daily. Personally, that is what I endeavor to do every single day when I partake of the Holy Communion in the privacy of my study.
I take the bread in my hand and thank Jesus for His provision of health, healing and wholeness for me. Then, I hold up the cup and thank my Savior for the provision of His blood that washes away all my sins and makes me righteous! Beloved, look to the cross and see how He has made possible every provision you need!
