Hello, and welcome to ForgivenFully.com, a ministry of Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. My name is Daniel, your host here at ForgivenFully. The purpose of ForgivenFully is to share with you the exclamation point of God’s forgiveness.
Do you live life with a question mark hanging over your relationship with God? Have you ever wondered, ‘Does God accept me? Does He really love me? Am I really, truly, fully forgiven? How can I know that I am fully forgiven when I see faults and failures in my life?’ These questions tend to church within us like a restless sea because we all experience guilt; we all sin and fall short of what God expects and deserves.
...So what to do about these questions that leave us in doubt about our relationship with God?
Well that’s why ForgivenFully exists – to share with you the exclamation point of God’s forgiveness. So our theme is this straightforward message from the Bible: “Through Jesus, the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.” Maybe you’ve never heard it that clearly before, but there it is! And when the Apostle Paul spoke this, he actually said it a little more strongly. He said, “I want you to know that through Jesus, the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.” (Acts 13:38). I want you to know. That’s an expression we don’t often use unless it’s to really make a point, when it’s something serious, or a special assurance is needed. A parent may speak that way to a child at times, or a husband to his wife – not just ‘I love you,’ but, ‘I want you to know that I truly love you.’ And that is God’s Word to you! God says to you, ‘I want you to know that you don’t need to live with a question mark about my love for you or the fullness of my forgiveness to you. I want you to know that the forgiveness I give you in the name of my Son, Jesus, always comes with the certainty of an exclamation point.’ That is what ForgivenFully is all about.
So I invite you to join me often at ForgivenFully.com. There will be a new video at least weekly and other posts along the way to encourage you with this message of full forgiveness through Jesus. I’d love to hear from you and to answer any questions you may have; you’ll find my contact information on the website. Check out the link on free faith-building resources which I’d be happy to send you. And if you want to learn more about what it means to be forgiven fully through Jesus, I invite you to visit us at Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church on George Dieter; check out the Christ Our Redeemer link for more information.
Thank you for your time, and may God bless you with what you heard here today at ForgivenFully.com.
