Start out the new year ANEW!!! Jesus died on the cross for you and me. When he was on that cross he prayed, "Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
If God could forgive the men who nailed his son to the cross, why do you not think he won't forgive you?
What do you think is beyond the forgiveness of God? It stands to reason that if Jesus asked his Father to forgive the very men who crucified him, and God did, then there is nothing and no one that He cannot or will not forgive when he is humbly asked.
Taken from, "Just Give Me Jesus."
If God forgives those who nailed him to the cross why can't you not forgive yourself or someone else who has sinned against you? Are your standards higher than his?
Are you more righteous than he? Who are you to say, " Thank you God, but I can't forgive myself or someone who has sinned against me."
The only response should be," Thank you God, I know I don't deserve it, But I accept your grace and forgiveness. And in return, I forgive that person who has sinned against me"
Start out the New Year ANEW!!! God loves you and wants to be in your life. Give him the opportunity. All you have to do is ask!!!!
AMEN!! Wishing all a very Blessed and Happy New Year!!!!
I have been reading the book, "Just Give Me Jesus" by "Anne Graham Lotz". It has given me such inspiration
