Scripture Sunday - 1 John 1:9

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all

This is, I believe, one of the first bible verses I memorized, and I'm sure all you sinners out there can relate. B)
I think sometimes we can have a tendency to complicate confession and repentance, to make forgiveness
dependant on how "sorry" we are for our sin. How dare we!! To think this way is the same as saying that Jesus'
sacrifice on the cross was not enough, and that God does not love unconditionally, as it is clearly shown in
His word! Here are some thoughts on this verse that I wrote a while ago:

 "We must cling to this promise. When we have strayed, and the accuser comes to take away all hope in
being forgiven, we must cling to this with all our strength. We must hold God to His promise, for He has
never made a promise that He did not, or will not, keep. So when your soul is tempted to be overcome by
despair, hold fast to Jesus and the sacrifice He made for you on that cross, for that is the only way this promise can ever be made to us."

Keep holdin' fast, people!
