FINDING JESUS & FORGIVENESS



This Day's Verse
I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
Proverbs 8:17


The love of our Savior, Jesus, is so infinite that it is impossible to put it to measure. He was brutally beaten and nailed to a cross where he died for all sin for all time. Do you feel he knew the full meaning of what was happening to him, and the role he would play in eternity, as he was dying on the cross? Surely God, his father, spoke to him and gave him comfort. He was buried and rose again on the third day. He reigns with His father God in heaven to this day. His love is as infinite as that of His father, God.
Peter came to Jesus and asked,  Lord how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times? Jesus answered, I tell you, not seven times, But seventy seven times.
Matthew 18 - 21


Jesus' answer to Peter shows how very much he loves us. He wants to forgive us and give us all the chances to redeem ourselves that we seek. If there is a chance to gain one soul forever, Jesus feels this soul is worth saving. If one is repeatedly messing up, and looking for Jesus, he will find him in prayer of forgiveness. There, one will find sanctification and comfort. Without even hearing the voice say "you are forgiven", one can end prayer feeling better and positive that Jesus has forgiven him. Jesus wants to save as many souls as possible from the devil. The devil keeps snatching people up and making them do things that they later regret. Jesus will always forgive and save you from the fire pit of hell if you come to him and ask forgiveness.

Do not be afraid to seek him out, for you will surely find him. Take comfort that none of us is without sin, so if you mess up seventy times seventy-seven times, and MORE, you will be forgiven if you come to him with a contrite heart and ask in sincerity for forgiveness. Jesus didn't go through hell on earth and then rise to heaven to leave you alone. He is with you all of the time! Jesus is the most loving man that ever walked on the face of this earth. And he and God continue to love us because we are like little children who do not know as much as their parents. In that, they are not too harsh to not forgive you. When you think of Jesus, think and feel complete, infinite love surrounding you.

Lovingly in Jesus Christ,
ABBEY
