Anchoring Truths from God's Word

Pardon By The Judge

Humans are born with a sinful nature, which makes us sinners in need of a Savior. As it tells us in these verses, we can seek God and be forgiven for our unrighteousness. There is no need to live in past sins and failures and let them control our lives when we can seek the Lord for His forgiveness. Now is the time to seek the Lord because there is coming a day where our chance to seek His forgiveness will be gone. There is coming an appointed day when there will be no more chances to seek Him. If you have sought the Lord, you will be forgiven because He gives us promises throughout His Word that He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). God is the Judge and has the final say, and He promises to pardon you when you call out to Him in repentance. He loved us so much to send His Son, Jesus, to take our place so that we can have this abundant pardon. The devil wants you to live in the past, but the Lord is near unto you. He promises to have mercy upon those who turn away from their sins, not only to forgive but also to forget our transgressions (Psalm 103:12). Don't allow yourself to live in the past but in the presence of God.
