1 John 2:12 I am writing to you, dear children, because your sins have been forgiven on account of His name.

Our sins are not going to be forgiven. They already are forgiven. Everything that we have done wrong and will do wrong has been forgiven. It doesn’t matter how minor or major the fault was, it’s all forgiven.

Our sins are not forgiven because of the good things that we do. There is no amount of works we can do to be forgiven by God. Our sins are forgiven because of the sacrifice of Jesus. He took on our sins and took the punishment for our sins (1 Peter 2:24).

For God or anyone else to hold our sins against us is an insult to the sacrifice of Jesus. We have been forgiven. Receive this forgiveness and know that through Christ, we are in right standing with God.
