Daily Fountain 2017 - Joy That Follows Forgiveness







Sunday January 29th

Bible Reading:     Heb. 10: 26 - 39

Topic:         Joy That Follows Forgiveness

Nothing compares with one being free from sin. There is joy inexpressible.

We are meant to understand three things from this Psalm

1.      That true forgiveness comes from God

2.      That there is need for us to confess our sins before God for us to obtain Divine and complete forgiveness. The Bible says "though our sins are like scarlet, God will make them white as snow." So we have to confess our sins to God whenever we transgress

3.      That we will have true joy when our sins are forgiven (vs. 2) And when our sins are forgiven, we will be free from guilt.
Forgiveness brings joy and you will begin to feel God's presence.

The Bible says "if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1 : 9)

Unless you do this, you will never find peace in this world (Ps. 32: 3 - 5)

The peace He gives is not like that of the world (John 14: 27). His peace is so overwhelming that we cannot fathom its depth

So beloved in Christ, go to Christ, confess your sins and obtain Divine forgiveness and have the joy of the Lord.

Prayer:
My Heavenly Father, please forgive me my sins and grant me the joy of my salvation, Amen

Memory verse:   Ps. 32: 10
"Many sorrows shall be to the wicked, but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about."
