5.13.20 – Daily Dose of Worship. 1 John 2:12. Forgiven.

PRAYER: Please pray for all of the kids represented in our community. Pray for their hearts and their minds, that they would be centered on Jesus first, all else second.

DEVOTION: “I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus. – ‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:12‬

I was going to add another verse or two to this devotion but stopped at the end of this verse. The sheer incredulity of it forced me to stop. It’s almost impossible to believe when we get right down to it.


Forgiven through Jesus.

That a man would leave the heavens, be born into this world and then suffer and die for me, for you. It’s almost too much to believe.

Faith. God give us faith to believe. Ears to hear and hearts to accept all that you have for us.

Know today that you are forgiven. Forgiven of it all. Not some. All.

    God IS love and giving one’s life for one’s friends is the greatest form of love of all. We are all God’s kids and He wants the best for us and created us to be one in Him and with Him. Jesus sacrifice on the cross ensures that if we believe.
