Jesus Forgives our Sins when we have Faith


Journey Through The Bible: Jesus Forgives our Sins when we have Faith

Scripture Reading: 1 John 2:1-4 "My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world." #1303

Introduction: Last week we looked at John the Baptist sending Messengers, Jesus Praises John. Matthew 11 #1046, Luke 7:18-30 #1107 Today we see Jesus as He forgives the repentant woman. Luke 7:36-8:3 #1109 Next week we will look at Jesus accused of Blasphemy. Matthew 12, Mark 3:20-30, Luke 11 #1116

As we continue our Journey through the Bible, we saw that we are to remain steadfast in our faith. This week we see that Jesus forgives those who repent and have faith in Him. Jesus shows us that we must be humble and love Him for forgiving us our many sins.
