A token of Love, an embrace of Mercy

Micah 7:19
“He will again have compassion on us; he will tread our iniquities underfoot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.”

Have you ever come to that place where you think that your too bad to be forgiven, your conscience seems to be only tainted by the guilt of that sin, your fellow believers make it worse still, tagging you as a culprit of sin, singing a song of condemnation that never ceases to play in your ears.

Meanwhile, as your busy blaming yourself and painting yourself with the sin that was so drowned, frowning in your distress, beating yourself over something that is now a by gone, Grace awaits for you to embrace His being, a token of Love, an embrace of forgiveness, a prevalent Mercy.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For our sake He made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

We are the righteousness of God because of what Christ achieved back on the cross!
David even when he was being cursed and alleged to be the cause of his own misfortunes (2 Samuel 16:5-13), takes the blame but never condemns himself at one point. That He dares to say that his hands are clean is quite an interesting bit, Did David have Jesus, you wonder, but Yes He had God and we have both, David knew the God He serves, a loving, merciful, forgiving father!! He knew it is God that renders one innocent from hidden faults, and blameless and innocent of great transgression!!

Psalm 19:12-14
¹²Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. ¹³Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. ¹⁴Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

He very much knew His sinfulness as seen in Ps:51, when he confessed his sin after the sexual incident with Bathsheba, when prophet Nathan exposed his sin, and he recorgnises his need for grace at the same time and the confidence he has in that grace that he renders himself, righteous and one who has taken God’s precepts in action!!

Psalm 18:23
²³I was upright before Him and blameless with Him, ever [on guard] to keep myself free from my sin and guilt.

What is it that drove the woman with the alabaster oil to the feet of Jesus, it wasn’t a mistake nor by incidence that she went there but she learned that Jesus was there and went there with an alabaster oil.

John 7:37
“And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment.”

What is it that drew her to the feet of Jesus despite the rejection, condemnation? What is it that spiked the Pharisees to bring the adulteress woman to be stoned in front of Jesus? (John 8:1-11). A lesson therein is, we aren’t all perfect, we have messed up in all ways, but once we find grace which is in Christ, we find MERCY. Men will deem us guilty for a guilt they themselves are guilty of!! ( Ref Romans 2:1). Before men, it is condemnation, before God, it is otherwise a plea of not guilty, justification by faith.

We all mess up at some point, even all points, nevertheless that doesn’t change who you are in Christ neither who God is, You are justified, loved and forgiven!! For His name’s sake, he blots out our sin and remembers it no more!! Then he says, he casts your sins in a sea of forgetfulness!! So dear beloved, as your busy un burying the past, drowning in your mistakes, remember grace and mercy, run back to the arms of Love. Deny not His death for your righteousness, allow God to be in your life, knowing that when you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you!!

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Prophetic Utterance :

I believed and therefore I am not condemned, in recognition and confession of my sin, I am forgiven, this is my portion, I take it , i believe it!!
I am free, I live in the Liberties of God.

Guiding scripture:

Isaiah 43:25
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Romans 8:1
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,
