I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate… So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. Rom7:15,8:1-2. We all make mistakes from time to time, and do things we don’t want to do despite our best intentions, but because of Jesus we now have the Holy Spirit to guide us and strengthen us so that we can break out of old habits or wrong desires and wrong thinking. In Jesus we now have freedom and liberty so that when we do mess up,we can come to the throne of grace where Gods love, mercy and forgiveness never runs out. Thank Jesus today for dying for you and for sending you the Holy Spirit. Thank Jesus that in Him our past has been wiped clean and we now have a new life and a fresh start.

Amen! What an incredibly blessing to be able to be forgiven for our sins. May we share that same forgiveness with those who sin against us. Blessings!
