Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. (John 8:36, New King James Version)
Let me start out by saying that if you've excepted Christ as your savior, YOU ARE FREE!!!! That's enough and we could stop right there. But... In our sermon at church last night, we were taught that, yes, we may be saved, but we have sins that we need to be freed from. I didn't say forgiven, because we were forgiven of every sin we've ever committed when we excepted the Lord. And even when we become Christians, we will still be forgiven of our sin...when we ask for forgiveness. Ladies, you see, when we sin and don't ask for God's forgiveness for that sin, we're held in bondage to it. And you know what? Until we ask for forgiveness and get that issue resolved, whatever we do for the Lord counts for nothing. Is their something today that you need to ask for forgiveness for? Maybe it's anger that's built up inside of you. Maybe it's that you've betrayed somebody. Maybe it's gossip. Let me encourage you, whatever that is, ask for forgiveness today!
Father, we ask Your forgiveness for any sin that we've committed. We ask that you cleanse us so that we may serve You with a pure heart. Lord thank you for the forgiveness that you provided us on the cross 2000 years ago. We love You and we praise You. Amen.
