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.

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...

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...
