It’s been 40+ years since the infamous Roe v Wade. Chances are many who are reading this blog weren’t alive then. Roe v Wade is a US Supreme Court case concerning abortion on demand. Now you might think that I’m going to address that issue, but I’m not. I want to talk about forgiveness!
Many years ago, Charles and I were teaching a young married Sunday School class. I was visiting at the home of one of the students when she began crying. She had two precious daughters but was riddled with guilt about the child she had aborted.
Please hear this…God forgives! Not just some sins, but all of them. 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
Purify. Transitive verb:to make pure: as, a: to clear from material defilement or imperfection, b: to free from guilt or moral or ceremonial blemish, c: to free from undesirable elements (Merriam-Webster)
Jesus forgives those who come to Him in confession. Not only does He forgive, He restores! Your enemy, however, fills you with anguish and self-loathing. Jesus has freed you, Love Heart. Thank Him and lift up your head! Gwen~
