He Cleansed Us From Our Sins

We serve a wonderful, merciful God who has cleansed us from all of our sins. Not some of our sins, not a portion of our sins, but He has washed away all of our sins. Nothing but a loving God could do that. There are times when we remember our own sins, or someone else reminds us of our sins from the past. But, by the grace and mercy of God, He has given us a clean slate. Somebody ought to shout right now! Thank God for His mercy! He has cleansed us from all unrighteousness. In 1 John 3:6, we find these words:

“Anyone who continues to live in Him will not sin. But anyone who keeps on sinning does not know Him or understand who He is.”

John’s writing makes it clear that Jesus came to take away all of our sins. The only one who is sinless is Christ, yet by His suffering and death, He has taken away the penalty of our sin and given us a new life. We, the children of God, have been set free and made whole by the power of His blood. The songwriter writes, “What can wash away our sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make us whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” Thank God for His precious blood. Neither our good works nor our good deeds can wipe away our sins. Only by His divine power are we made new. Glory to His Holy and Righteous name!
