Knowing the Truth of God’s Cleansing

Knowing the truths in the Bible related to what transpired at our salvation is the solid foundation for our Christian life. In a previous post, we discussed the truth of God’s forgiveness. Seeing the thoroughness of God’s forgiveness of our sins reassures us and gives us a way to go on. In this post we’ll discuss God’s cleansing of our sins. God’s cleansing certainly applies to our experience...

Knowing the Truth of God’s Forgiveness

Have you ever wondered whether God keeps a record of the sins you committed before you were saved? Have you ever been afraid those sins might still be a problem? To counter these fears, we need to know God granted us a deep and thorough forgiveness of all our sins when we were saved. But how can we know that? We can know not by our feelings or thoughts but by God’s sure Word. In another post we...

A Question about the Unforgivable Sin

We received the comment and questions below from someone who read our post, “Can You Lose Your Salvation?”: “I am so glad that I was able to find this article. I know that God’s decisions cannot be changed and that He holds us in His hands. Yet I still feel insecure about my salvation. Can you please answer these questions: Is the unforgivable sin not accepting Jesus as Savior? Can a Christian...

Experiencing the Precious Blood of Christ in Our Christian Life Today [with video]

As Christians, we realize that Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins and that because of this we can receive Him and be saved from eternal perdition. But once we’re born again, what is our relationship with Christ’s blood? What does the blood of Christ mean to us right now, today, in our Christian lives? Take a look at the short video below to find out three applications of the...

3 Problems That Can Only Be Solved by the Blood of Jesus

In previous posts we discussed that as believers in Jesus Christ we can be fully assured that we’re really saved and that we can never lose our salvation—it’s eternally secure. But since we can’t lose our salvation, some might have this question: “Does that mean it doesn’t matter how we live after we’re saved? Are we free to do whatever we want? After all, nothing can change my salvation.” But...

What Do I Do When I Sin after Being Saved?

When we first repented to God and received Jesus Christ as our Savior, we were forgiven of all our sins. What peace flooded our hearts! And God’s Word assures us that our salvation is for all eternity and can never be undone. But although we’re saved, we know from our personal experience we’re not immune to sin. We still sin after salvation, despite our good intentions and efforts to avoid...

Will God Keep Forgiving Me?

Christians know they aren’t immune to sin. But what happens when we commit the same sins over and over? Isn’t this disappointing to God? Will He become angry and, eventually, refuse to forgive us? How long does it take before that happens? As believers in Christ, we need to be clear concerning sin, forgiveness, and God’s heart toward us. When we don’t know or we forget what the Bible says...

The Power of the Blood of Jesus Christ

As Christians, we know from verses like Hebrews 9:12 that by the shedding of His own blood, Jesus Christ accomplished redemption for us. By believing in His redemption, we are saved. All our sins are forgiven because Jesus shed His blood for us. But what about after we’re saved? How is the blood of Jesus applicable to us in our Christian life? These questions are tremendously important for our...

Why We Need to Confess Our Sins and How to Do It

As believers we’re saved eternally, and God desires that we, as believers, would not sin. We can see this in the story of the Lord Jesus and the adulterous woman in John 8. Jesus, as the only One without sin, the only One who can forgive sin, and the only One qualified to condemn sin, did not condemn this woman. But, the Savior’s last words to her were this: “Go, and from now on sin no more.” As...

The Difference between Sin and Sins and God’s Provision for Both

Since believing in the Lord Jesus and receiving His life, have you tried very hard to live a sinless life, only to be disappointed? The harder you try, the less you succeed. Perhaps you’ve even doubted your salvation altogether, or thought you lost it. Rest assured: once you’re saved, you’re saved eternally. Yet a question may still loom in your mind, “If I’m a Christian, why can’t I stop sinning...
