Colossians 2:13-14 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
Nike says “Just do it”. Addidas says “Impossible is nothing”. Burger King says “Have it your way”. And should there be a slogan for Christians, it will surely say “Loved and Forgiven”.
Forgiveness is the very heart of Christianity. Sadly though, some if not most of Christians are unaware of the extent of forgiveness God bestowed to Him.
Yes, Jesus died for our sins. We know that. But why is it that each time we sin, a sense of guilt and rejection befalls in our conscience as if God somewhat walked away and would never turn his face towards us again — unless of course He gets even? And so we expectantly wait for the punishment, associate bad events and sicknesses, and gladly accept them as divine “payback time” instead of asking God for deliverance and restoration.
I met a lot of Christians who came to a point of even doubting their salvation because of this wrong notion. The deep feeling of remorse and condemnation often times lead us away from God. We inflict condemnation to ourselves and try hard to pay back God our dues not knowing that Christ already paid and nailed them to the cross.
