By: O. Samuel
We thank God for such another blessed day. We pray that His will continues to be done in our lives. Yesterday we talked about the Borrowed type of forgiveness. I believe you are enjoying it. Today we go on to talk about the ‘Communional Forgiveness’. Let us read 1 John 1:7-9 from the KJV Bible, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”.
The forgiveness mentioned here is neither the one which we received at the time of our salvation nor that which the Church extends to us. Though we have received eternal forgiveness, we may weaken and once again sin before the Lord, thus interrupting our fellowship with God. So once again we need forgiveness. God’s children will not lose their position as His children because of sin but rather their fellowship with Him. Therefore God has provided a kind of forgiveness which we call Communional forgiveness. Why that name?
Because coming to God and confessing your sins, you may have your communion and fellowship with God restored;otherwise you have no other way of even having your fellowship with the saints restored. Brethren let us always pray to apply the Blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse our sins in order to gain a good fellowship with God and the saints.May God grace us the more. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
