Today’s Topic: The Forgiveness of Our Sins
We do not have to fear God’s judgment, because Jesus paid for all our sins: past, present, and future.

DR CHARLES STANLEY DEVOTIONAL JULY 20, 2022

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 103:1-22

Many people today are weighed down by the guilt they carry. This is understandable for those who’ve rejected Christ, but Christians have been relieved of their guilt through faith in the Savior. In other words, there’s no point in a believer continuing to live under that heavy burden. Forgiveness of sins is based on the riches of God’s grace and the sufficiency of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.

When Jesus said, “It is finished,” He was proclaiming that redemption for sins was accomplished (John 19:30). He paid the full price with His death, and now all who believe in Him are forgiven. The scope of Christ’s atoning sacrifice reaches back to the past, into the present, and beyond to the future. That means we never have to fear that something we did in the past or might do in the future is beyond the reach of God’s forgiveness. The Lord never takes back His pardon.

Because of our faith in Christ’s completed work on the cross, we can be assured that we have received and will continue to receive His divine mercy. But that doesn’t give us license to sin (Romans 6:1-2). Rather, it should produce gratitude along with deeper love for God and a passion for holiness.
