Memorise: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6

Bible Reading: Hebrews 4:15-16

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Bible Reading In One Year: Jeremiah 33-35, Titus 3:1-15

MESSAGE:

God loves everyone including the chronic sinner, although He hates the sin they commit. Hence, any fellow that comes to Him in sincerity, He will accept and draw near to them. John 6:37 says:

“All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

So, it doesn’t matter how bad the sin you committed might be, all you need to do is come to Christ in humility and then ask for the forgiveness of your sins with the intention of not going back to it. Then, after asking God for forgiveness, you need to have faith that you have been forgiven. 1 John 1:7-9 says if we sincerely confess and forsake our sins, we can be assured of forgiveness. Its a pity that some children of God remain in guilt after asking God for forgiveness claiming that they don’t feel forgiven. Faith and feeling are on opposite sides. While faith believes before seeing, feeling believes after seeing. You can’t serve God with feeling, you can only please Him with faith. If you have met all the requirements, you are forgiven.

Action Point:

Stop feeling, start faithing

HYMN: O SPREAD THE TIDINGS ‘ROUND,

  1. O spread the tidings ’round,
    Wherever man is found,
    Wherever human hearts and
    Human woes abound.
    Let every Christian tongue
    Proclaim the joyful sound:
    The Comforter has come!

Chorus:
The Comforter has come!
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Father’s Promise giv’n,
O spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found:
The Comforter has come!

  1. The long, long night is past;
    The morning breaks at last;
    And hushed the dreadful wail
    And fury of the blast,
    As o’er the golden hills
    The day advances fast!
    The Comforter has come!
  2. Lo, the great Kings of Kings,
    With healing in His wings,
    To every captive soul a full
    Deliv’rance brings;
    And thro’ the vacant cells
    The song of triumph rings;
    The Comforter has come!
  3. O boundless love divine!
    How shall this tongue of mine
    To wond’ring mortals tell
    The matchless grace divine-
    That I, a child of hell,
    Should in His image shine?
    The Comforter has come!
