From All Sin

From  All Sin

There is so much comfort  for us  in the Bible  —  if we just open it up  and partake  of it.     The comfort  everyone needs  is the comfort  of being made worthy  of eternal life  in heaven.     The only way  to be worthy  is to be pure  and holy  —  to be absolutely rid  of all our sins.

So,  how can that  take place  for each of us?

1 John 1:7  tells us,

If we walk  in the Light  as He Himself  is in the Light,  we have fellowship  with one another,  and the blood  of Jesus  His Son  cleanses us  from all sin.

To walk  in God’s  “Light”  is to live according  to His truths  in the Bible.     That means believing  what God says  in the Bible  about our Savior,  Jesus Christ  —  loving the way God loves us  —  thanking  and praising God  for the free salvation  He has given us  in Christ  —  abiding  in the word  of God  —  studying and learning  from it.

When we abide  in God’s word  —  in the Bible’s promises  —  we are  having “fellowship”  with God.     In our “fellowship”,  we learn  how God  has worked  our salvation  for us  —  and  we thank Him  for having Jesus  suffer and die  on the cross  to pay  for all our sins.

John is  specifically teaching us  that when we have  “fellowship”  with God,  “the blood  of Jesus  His Son  cleanses us  from all sin.     “All sin”  means  “all sin”.     There are no exceptions.     God is fully aware  of how greatly  we need  to be cleansed  from “all”  our “sin”.     Washing away some  of our sin  will not make us  holy enough  for heaven.     We need cleansing from  “all sin”.

So,  we need  to notice  that John says  Jesus  cleanses us  from all sin.     That word  “cleanses”  tells us  that we are made clean  from all  of our past sins  —  the sins  of this moment  —  and the sins  we will sin  in the future.     John is talking about  an on-going cleansing   “from all sin”.     It is not just the sins  we know about  —  but also the sins  we are not aware of  for all time.

Such cleansing  truly makes us pure  and holy  —  worthy  of eternal life.     And we owe our thanks  to God  every day,  as we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  You are the giver  of eternal life.     Thank You!”

Love,
Margaret
