“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for
My own sake; And I will not remember your sins."
"The Lord is merciful and gracious,
Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
He will not always strive with us,
Nor will He keep His anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins,
Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame;
He remembers that we are dust."
I John 1:8-10
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves,
and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is
faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not
sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us."
I personally stand in need of God’s forgiveness. I struggle
against sin all the time. Its a never ending battle to resist
what Paul called the “old self” or the “sinful nature.”
Do you think most Christians have the same ongoing battle
