"Honesty & Forgiveness" - Wednesday, June 22nd

"Honesty & Forgiveness" - Wednesday, June 22nd

When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me; my vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; and You forgave the guilt of my sin. Psalm 32:3-5

Today's thoughts from today's verse:

 In today’s Scripture the Psalmist says that he will not keep silent about his sin and that he will not hide his iniquity from the Lord. The Psalmist also speaks of acknowledging his sin and confessing his transgressions to the Lord. The Psalmist then tells us that the result of his honesty was that the Lord forgave the guilt of his sin. A passage from the New Testament that parallels the verses from our Psalm is 1 John 1:8-9 where it says, “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Being honest with the Lord is all about being open and transparent with him. When we are honest with the Lord we will readily confess sin to him. Confession of sin is necessary for forgiveness. This is true for initial forgiveness which allows us to begin a relationship with God and for ongoing forgiveness which allows us to maintain a close and full relationship with God. It is not uncommon for there to be confusion about forgiveness. It is important to really understand the difference between initial and ongoing forgiveness.

We might call initial forgiveness, redemptive forgiveness. When we receive redemptive forgiveness we are being delivered from the penalty of sin which is eternal separation from God. When we receive redemptive forgiveness we are given eternal life and are forever free of the penalty of being eternally separated from God. Redemptive forgiveness is a onetime transaction between us and God that never needs to be repeated.

We might call ongoing forgiveness, relational forgiveness. When we receive relational forgiveness we are being delivered from the impact of our sin which is the interruption of close fellowship with God. When we receive relational forgiveness the fellowship we have with God in our relationship with him is restored. If a married couple have a fight that interferes with their relationship, they don’t get married again to set things right. They just patch things up and go forward in the relationship they already have. We never need to be afraid that the failure of sin will rob us of our relationship with God. But we do need to be concerned that a lack of honest confession of sin for relational forgiveness will rob us of fellowship with God in the forever relationship we have with him because of the redemptive forgiveness which was freely given to us from the start.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, thank you that I am forgiven forever of the penalty of sin. Thank you that you are always ready to forgive my sin along the way in my relationship with you. Help me always to be open, transparent, and honest with you, so that the close and full relationship we have with each other is consistently maintained. Amen!

Hardly anyone is aware of the fact that the conception for this website came in the mind of its creator
from the live video chat which he use to do on the popular site named Skype.

It is also integrated for the website sites with the help of
3rd party shareware software program. Apart from downloading the required software you also had
to fill lengthy registration forms. It meant downloading and installing different software by
logging onto the net before you could enjoy chatting with
those you knew or with strangers. In case you are yet new to the feature and prefer chatting without displaying your video shoot,
you also have the option of deactivating your web cam option and chat at the free live video chat room.

This is because, cam to cam chatting means being able
to look at the face of your chatting partner. You can just login as a
guest and start your own Cam Show.
