Colossians 2:!3 says
When you were dead in your sins and in the circumcision of your flesh, God made you[d] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins
ALL our sins were forgiven in Christ. It means even before you were born your sins were forgiven in Christ.
Psalms 139: 16 says
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be
...... how true!!! Even before we were born he has ordained a forgiven life for us in Christ.
Colossians 1:22 says
But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation--
So now not only are our sins forgiven we are presented as holy, without blemish and free from accusation in front of God. This is the NEW CREATION and NEW IDENTITY in Christ.
So today let us examine how our prayer life is. Are we still going and confessing our sins and seeking forgiveness which was already done? Are we asking God to repeat the process of forgiveness when we all know Christ cannot be crucified again and again daily to forgive us. WE ARE FORGIVEN FROM PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE SIN ONCE AND FOR ALL.
So today let us pray and ask God to reveal his love and receive forgiveness even when we sin in our day to day life. We do fall ........ but let us be quick to get up and run away from sin not because of fear of hell or punishment but because we have a God who has already forgiven all our wrong doings and has given us a new identity of holy and righteous child.
Let us lead a life today knowing we are the NEW CREATION AND THE OLD HAS GONE. Let go of the old and embrace the new nature.
Have a great day.
