Our Sins.. Even Our Worse Sin… Can Be Forgiven

I am a sinner. You are a sinner. Hopefully that doesn’t destroy your self-esteem because, it is a Bible fact. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).”
But lots of people have problems with that. If you begin trying to explain to someone that they need to have their sins forgiven, they might stop you and let you know they don’t think they are sinner. But we are… we all are.
The Psalmist spoke about our sin when he said, “How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults”(Psalms 19:12).
Think about that verse… “How can I know all the sins LURKING in my heart…”
That may not be a pretty picture but, it’s true. We do have sins lurking in our hearts.
Have you ever thought something that was bad and immediately thought, “Lord that was terrible!” It’s because we are sinners. This refers to the depravity of man.
But, the great news is, even though we are sinners, our sins can be forgiven. Regardless what sins are “lurking in our hearts…” We can be forgiven because of what Jesus did on the cross!
Today, regardless what is in our hearts, we can go to Jesus knowing that if we will repent, we can be forgiven… regardless how ugly the sin is that lurks in our hearts… Thank God for forgiveness of sin!
