Forgiveness is good, Cleansing better

It is good news that God forgives.
If you don’t feel like you need forgiveness, wait 5 minutes.
I needed my own message yesterday, as I — even after recording the message on I John 1:8 — began to feel bad that my daughter’s problem were all due to my lack in parenting and providing. Fortunately I remembered the lesson. God is faithful to forgive. That is great; it sets me free from past failures.
God is also faithful to cleanse. So now I know better than I did. I can implement that.
God even empowers. God’s grace is empowering, not just forgivine. Ha! As if grace were only backward looking and not useful for present and future. That was the old religion I grew up in. No! grace empowers. Faithful to forgive, and cleanse, and grow, implement, prosper, do. Glory to God!
So we CAN be great parents, teachers, sons of God! Good news to start your week.
