If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps us from getting closer to God. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) When you pray, confess your sins to God and because He is merciful, He will forgive you. Don’t let your unconfessed sin destroy your fellowship with God.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.
God’s love for you was established since the beginning of time. It is confirmed daily as He forgives, protects, provides, heals and demonstrates His continued grace, mercy and power in your life. God’s magnificent love is sovereign, unchangeable and everlasting.
The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.
Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord. Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity. Show your children love, discipline when necessary and have compassion on them. Children, obey, respect and honor your father as the Lord commands. Fathers and children, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
If you are blessed to still have your mother in your life honor her as the Lord commands. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
I am a witness to the changes God has made in my life. I am no longer the same and now through the power of the Holy Spirit I am a witness to God’s message of love and forgiveness. You too are a witness and can share what the Lord has done for you.
You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.
I’m so grateful that we serve a forgiving God. If not for His forgiveness, grace, and mercy where would we be? He is ready to forgive us, He won’t hold back, all we have to do is come to Him with a sincere heart and ask to be forgiven through faith.
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.
Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”? It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.
