Welcome back to Faith Fridays! I am still reading through Sun Stand Still by pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church. Slowly but surely I will get through it. It’s been so good and honestly, life changing. It made me think about my faith in an entirely different way.
In the book, Steven talks about how to ignite your audacious faith. What is audacious faith? I explained it here and give a great quote from the book. Steven also talks about Twelve Faith Confessions and how hearing the Word initiates our faith, speaking the Word activates our faith, and finally doing the Word demonstrates faith. These twelve Faith confessions will help us do just that. They are based off of comprehensive teachings of God’s word. And I love all twelve of them. Every Friday I will be sharing a new one.
What does it mean to be fully forgiven?
This week, it is a simple reminder. In that we are fully forgiven. It doesn’t matter what we’ve done in this life. The worst sins or how much we’ve condemned God himself, he still LOVES us and forgives us fully.
Think about that for a minute. Imagine someone cheated on you, abused you, or killed someone you loved… Can you imagine FULLY forgiving that person? LOVING that person, despite what he/she did to you?
But for God, it is simple. His promise always has and always will be true. He forgives, he loves, and he welcomes you into his arms like a Father. Take some time today to soak up the power of that.
It is my hope that you will print this off, you will post it somewhere where you will see it every day. And that you will speak God’s word to yourself every day.
So welcome again to Faith Friday. I hope you will find your audacious faith with me!
