Daily Nugget

      Friday, June 1st, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

A pastor’s son and his mom had been to a shopping mall and the boy had acted badly, wanting this and that, running off, etc. As they were driving home, he could sense her displeasure and said, “When we ask God to forgive us when we are bad, He does, doesn’t He?” His mother replied, “Yes, He does.” The boy continued, “And when He forgives us, He buries our sins in the deepest sea, doesn’t He?” The mom replied, “Yes, that’s what the Bible says.” The boy was silent for awhile and then said, “I’ve asked God to forgive me, but I bet when we get home, you’re going to go fishing for those sins, aren’t you?”

Too often, we do “go fishing” for other people’s sins that God has already buried. I am so glad God, our heavenly Father, forgives us quickly, completely, and permanently. In 1 John 1:9 the writer tells us: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

God, thank You for Your complete forgiveness. Amen
