Thought For The Day: 180 Degree Turn (10.29.20)

If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

1 John 1:9, NLT

It’s not very uncommon to see folks preach on 1 John 1:9. God is faithful and just to forgive us our wins if we confess But the part we don’t normally focus on is what Jesus said in John 8:11

And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

(John 8:11, NLT)

God is more interested in your one “am sorry” with 180 degree turn than your dozens of “am sorry” with 360 degree turn

Today is a new day, a new opportunity for a Fresh Start. Let’s talk to God about our sins, evil desires, bad habits, etc and be determined to move toward the opposite direction, which is best. When you do that, His Grace will carry you on. Amen.
