“But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins” (Luke 5:24).
There is no greater joy than to know the joy of sins forgiven. Sin is a terrible burden to bear. It is a weight that is crushing, a shame that is tormenting, and a burden that is never ending. Men and women do everything imaginable to find relief from the heartache and humiliation of sin. There is only one solution. Sin can be forgiven by Christ alone. He has the power or authority to forgive sin. Have you experienced the sheer delight of His forgiveness?
For today: Sense the joy of sins forgiven. You no longer have to carry around the weight of guilt and shame.
