Part 2: Forgiveness: our believer's privilege

(This is part 2 of 10 parts in this class)


You say, "I get most of my trouble with anguish about sin over the sins I've committed since I came to Jesus."

I was having trouble with this same anguish too but I now know that in Jesus I have the privilege of forgiveness. This has put a stop to that trouble I was having. Now as soon as I heed the conviction of the Holy Spirit about sin I go straight to the Father and confess it. He is always faithful and forgives me. I receive His forgiveness according to the promise of His Word and the Blood washes me from all unrighteousness.


The Bible promises,

If we admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins, and (continuously) cleanse us from all unrighteousness (everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action).

1 John 1:9 - Amplified Bible


And again it promises,

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

1 John 1:7 - NKJV


The privilege of forgiveness is there for you and me. Don't live for a moment in the dark, cold shadow of sin. Go to the Father and confess it so that you may have His forgiveness and know cleansing from all unrighteousness.
