Pocket Sized Thoughts – 1 John – Part 5

The blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin.” (1:7)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1:9)

As we walk and live in the light, there is a promise, which God will faithfully keep and never break. It is, that in the light, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin. These are not just sins that we are conscious of. They are all sins, new and old, known (to us) and unknown. They are sins which God knows and also sins of which the devil knows and accuses us. There is provision in the blood of Christ for all of them; every last one! We should not attempt to deceive ourselves, or hide away in some shadow, but be honest and confess all to God. If we have injured another, we may need to confess before them, but primarily our confession is to God. Oh, how He loves such confession. He not only forgives, but washes away every stain, every effect and every defilement of the awfulness of sin. It is like being made new; not that we should repeatedly sin, but to live in the light and fellowship of Christ, keeping us now and every moment clean. Then, the blood of Christ will wash us brighter and brighter so that we may live purer lives and be in ever closer fellowship with Him.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you for the amazing provision of the blood of Christ which washes me from sin and keeps me clean in your sight.”
