There is no sin that God looks upon and says, “No, I won’t forgive that one.” There is not one repentant heart that Jesus would ever turn away. Our sin, what ever it may be, hinders our walk with God. It does not allow us to move forward. It breaks our communication lines with Him, and leaves us feeling like we are so far away. Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” How can Jesus work in the life of a person who sees no fault in their sin? Sin is what slowly (but surely) ruins our relationship with God if we do not lay it down at His feet and ask Him to forgive us.
Lord, give me a repentant heart. Help me to recognize my own sins, and ask for your forgiveness so I may be able to walk free from it. You are merciful and loving, and I want to be close to You. Let nothing get in the way of our relationship. Amen!
