Christ’s Forgiveness is Freedom Not Probation

Today’s 1-minute takeaway: 111319

• Christ’s Forgiveness is Freedom Not Probation

My notes:

– When faith sleeps, my heart becomes an unclean thing, … the cage of unclean lusts all fluttering to escape. (Valley of Vision pg. 289)

– Christ alone presents us faultless before the Throne of God … come with irrepressible confidence in Jesus (who has saved us from eternal and total horror) (O. Chambers)

‘May the God of your hope so fill you with all peace and joy as you trust in him, so you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.’ Rom. 15:13

– Unconfessed, unforgiven sin will make you miserable.

– God’s forgiveness doesn’t put us on probation (it frees us completely!)

– Conviction + Confession = Cleansing + Confidence (Church Devotional)

“We first make choices and then our choices make us.” Anne Frank (Quote out of Nick Pitts’ blog this morning)

My takeaway: Faith in Christ alone is the confidence in the confessions we make. (Confession remakes who you are.)
