Tag Archives: Forgiveness of Sin

Forget The Past ~

There are many things,
we need to forget . . .
lest our soul’s will become
besieged by regret.

We need to wash our sins,
in the blood of grace
we need after former things
no longer pursue or chase.

We need to put the past,
behind us once and for all
we need on our failures
to cease on them to recall.

We need to banish our pride,
into the wilderness
we need to claim in Jesus
His love and forgiveness.

There are many things,
God has forgotten about us
now in His mercy . . .
we need to learn to trust!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 8:12

For I will be merciful
to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their
iniquities will I remember
no more.

A Purified Heart ~

A purified heart,
is a washed one
forgiven by God
cleansed by His Son.

It’s a penitent heart,
one once crimson
now as white as snow
with grace it glistens.

A purified heart,
is one renewed within
obedient to living
a life without sin.

It’s a anointed heart,
filled with the Spirit
one where pasts lusts
doesn’t go back to visit.

A purified heart,
is a heart blessed . . .
for its sins to God
it has confessed!

~~~~~~~~

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are
the pure in heart:
for they shall
see God.

The Height Of God’s Love ~

Have you considered,
God’s love and it’s height
have you been drawn . . .
to Jesus the true Light?

Do you know His love,
and its immensity
do you know Jesus died
for you unselfishly?

Do you comprehend,
God’s love unbiased
do you realize . . .
it is love at its highest?

Have you ever thought,
how could He ever love me
would you consider letting Him
from sin to set you free?

Can’t you feel the height,
the width, length and breadth
of God’s eternal love for you . . .
upon Jesus’ dying breath?

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just to
forgive us our sins, and
to cleanse us from all
unrighteousness.

Ephesians 3:17-19

That Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith; that ye, being
rooted and grounded in love,

May be able to comprehend
with all saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height;

And to know the love of Christ,
which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with
all the fulness of God.

My Hope Is In The Lord ~

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it never lets me down . . .
my hope is in the Lord
it’s always to be found.

It keeps me in perfect peace,
when around me there’s distress
it keeps me in God trusting
my faith it does not suppress.

My hope I’m not ashamed of,
it is my Life and my Way
my hope cannot be moved
by what other people say.

It keeps me focused,
on my eternal destiny
it fills my heart with joy
with vision’s heavenly.

My hope doesn’t disappoint,
it is my eternal goal . . .
my hope is the only thing
saving this wretched soul!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 17:7

Blessed is the man
that trusteth in the Lord,
and whose hope the Lord is.

Isaiah 26:3-4

Thou wilt keep him
in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed
on thee: because he
trusteth in thee.

Trust ye in the Lord for ever:
for in the Lord Jehovah
is everlasting strength:

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed
of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every
one that believeth;
to the Jew first, and
also to the Greek.

Got Me An Inheritance ~

I’ve got an inheritance,
that is enduring . . .
it is a permanent one
that is everlasting.

It will not rust or erode,
nor will it fade away
it is an assurance
to heaven a gateway.

I’ve got an inheritance,
that is indestructible
it is a resilient one
that is untouchable.

It will not corrode or rot,
nor will it disintegrate
it is worth more than gold
it will never de-valuate.

I’ve got an inheritance,
in heaven it’s reserved
and without Jesus
it’s one I don’t deserve!

~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Romans 3:24


Oh, Faithful Is Jesus ~

Oh, faithful is Jesus,
who our sin’s forgive
who when grace is needed
more of it He gives.

How generous is He,
who gives us each day
the Light that shines
on the Truth and Way.

Oh, faithful is He,
who purifies and clean
who when love is desired
more of it we can glean.

How unselfish is He,
who died for ours sins
so our very souls
He could redeem and win.

Oh, how faithful is Jesus,
who had no quilt or shame
that He should live to die . . .
for our eternal gain!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins
he is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness.

God’s Gift Of Love ~

God’s gift of Love,
is holy and pure
it has for everyone
the perfect cure.

For it is eternal,
unfailingly everlasting
it can be everyone’s
just for the asking.

God’s gift of Love,
is mightily powerful
when we give Jesus
our lives to control.

For He will change,
our heart’s of stone
into one’s that will be
just like His own.

God’s gift of Love,
is ours to embrace
when there is faith . . .
in His undying grace!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 3:16

For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only
begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.

Anchor Of Our Soul ~

An Anchor to the soul,
the hope of our certainty
Jesus became the way
to everlasting eternity.

Sure and steadfast,
in the truth grounded
our salvation in Him
is securely founded.

The veil has been lifted,
through Christ we enter in
in His righteousness
no longer bound to sin.

To His Father in heaven,
He gave us the boldness
to approach His throne
in the cloak of newness.

The Anchor of our soul,
Jesus is our security . . .
for He paid sin’s penalty
giving us all impunity!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 6:19

Which hope we have
as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into
that within the veil;

If You Will Seek ~

If to God you draw near,
He will hear your cry
if you confess your sins
your heart He’ll purify.

If you will seek His face,
He will hear your prayer
if you call on His name
your life He will repair.

If you return to God,
you will be restored
if with your whole heart
make Him again your Lord.

If you seek His presence,
His mercy will be found . . .
if your idols you’d remove
to Him you would be bond.

If you were to God,
draw once more near . . .
nothing in this world
would you again hold dear!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 4:8

Draw nigh to God,
and he will draw nigh to you.
Cleanse your hands, ye sinners;
and purify your hearts,
ye double minded.

Isaiah 55:6-7

Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts:
and let him return unto the Lord,
and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will
abundantly pardon.

Would, Should & Could “Of’s”

In the life of “would of’s”,
there are many regrets
full of accusations . . .
with negative effects.

But, God doesn’t remember,
our past sinful ways
for behind His back . . .
is where they now stay.

In the life of “should of’s”
there are lots of complaints
full of reminders . . .
of our lack of restraint.

But, Jesus makes it clear,
the old has passed away
all things are made new
once on the narrow way.

In the life of “would of’s”,
there’s a lot of “should of’s”
and to make matters worse
we throw in all the “could of’s”.

But, God forgives us,
of everyone of our “of’s”
be it would, should or could . . .
they’re all redeemed by His love!

~~~~~~~~~~

James 3:2

For in many things we offend all.
If any man offend not in word,
the same is a perfect man, and
able also to bridle the whole body.

Isaiah 38:17

Behold, for peace I had great
bitterness: but thou hast in
love to my soul delivered it
from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my
sins behind thy back.

On The Edge of Despair ~

 

I have been on the edge,
of complete, utter despair
I’ve looked over the ledge
not knowing what was there.

I’ve felt the bitter cold,
wrap me in it’s fearful grip
but, God had on me a hold
making sure I wouldn’t slip.

I have been to the threshold,
of total desperation
I’ve felt darkness enfold me
with fear and trepidation.

I’ve sensed the loom of doom,
engulf me with pure terror
but, God in the grasp of gloom
quelled my state of horror.

I have been on the edge,
of utter hopelessness
but, as I was on the ledge . . .
Jesus healed my brokenness!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4.8-10

We are troubled on every side,
yet not distressed;
we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken;
cast down, but not destroyed;

Always bearing about in the body
the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life also of Jesus might
be made manifest in our body.

Psalm 34:17-19

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth,
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

The Lord is nigh unto them that are
of a broken heart; and saveth such
as be of a contrite spirit.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

When The Thief Comes ~

When the thief comes,
it could be day or night
for all he cares about
is stealing Jesus’ light.

He has up his sleeve,
a life gripping plan
for, he wants to snatch you
right out of God’s hand.

His purpose is clear,
in hell he wants you
for, he’s out to destroy
your heavenly view.

He will discourage you,
he wants you defeated
for, he wants you to feel
you have been cheated.

When the thief comes,
you may be awake or asleep
for, all satan cares about . . .
is stealing Jesus’ sheep!

~~~~~~~~

John 10:10

“The thief cometh not,
but for to steal,
and to kill,
and to destroy:

I am come that they
might have life,
and that they might
have it more abundantly.”
