Christopher Underwood’s Encouragement Note April 2018

Psalm 130:3-4: “If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.”

God has always wanted faithful followers of his commandments even when God knows no man is without sin. The writer of Ecclesiastes 7:20 said “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins”.

The writer of Psalm 139 reminds us that wherever we go, wherever we rest, whatever word is on the tip of our tongue the Lord knows it all. Knowing our secrets are never secrets should humble us when considering the all-knowing God.

We must treasure the blessing of forgiveness daily and let the forgiveness be reflected to everyone you meet. It gives us that immediate self-correction so we do not think more highly of ourselves when looking at others.

Be happy that God does not want us to perish because of Satan’s worldly temptations and tricks.

It is important to know that God chooses to offer forgiveness to all that are willing to accept God’s forgiveness. God has made forgiveness available freely and daily in the safety of his love.

2 Peter 3:9: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

Have a great day
